Our May speaker is Dr Louise Blake who will provide us with a keen sense of Marion Miller Knowles, the woman, poet, writer and community worker, in Box Hill, and beyond. Marion spent 9 years teaching at Box Hill State School in the 1890s. In addition to producing short stories, novels, poetry and her ‘Aunty Patsy’ column for the Catholic Advocate, she was a foundation leader of the Catholic Women’s Club in Melbourne and the St Joseph’s children’s home in Surrey Hills.
This meeting will be held in Meeting Room 1, first floor, Box Hill Library, 1040 Whitehorse Road Box Hill – this venue is two doors east of the Town Hall.
Date: Sunday 19 May 2019
