Yarra Plenty Regional Library services the outer municipalities of Nillumbik, Whittlesea and Banyule in the north of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. This blog promoting local history in our community has been operating since 2006 and is managed by the Local and Family History Librarian.
She will talk about her recently released book: Laughing Waters Road. This book has recently been added to the local history collection at Eltham Library.
Jane who was the local history officer at the Shire of Nillumbik has a detailed knowledge of the history of the area. She has an extensive background as a writer, theartre director and teacher. She has woven together the experiences and art making of more than eighty artists, who since 2001 have been in residence at Laughing Waters in Birrarung Road and Riverbend, together with Wurundjeri, European and family histories to create an evocative account of a very special place in Eltham.
Eltham District Historical Society meet at the Eltham Senior Citizen's Centre, Library Place, Eltham.
