Clunes Booktown Festival – a great success.

We had a terrific showing at the Clunes Booktown Festival talking to potential new members and to those with a story to tell. Thirty lucky participants enjoyed our sold-out workshop by Susan Pierotti designed for memoir writing or a loved one’s life story.

It was a fantastic Life Stories Australia (LSA) information stand for writers and book lovers alike. LSA life stories writers talked (and listened) to hundreds of people who stopped to check out the LSA information and look at examples of our members’ life-story work. 

LSA member Tim Syrota was busy filming during the two days to create a video of LSA’s presence and offerings at the festival. We had samples of books our members have produced, podcasts and video examples along with informative pamphlets. So much interest in either the membership benefits or services offered by our life stories documenters for those interested in telling their story.

Des Tobin kindly donated copies of his book, A Man Called Phonse, a biography of his father Phonse Tobin, to Clunes festival goers and workshop participants. Thanks to volunteer members Deborah Gough, Susan Pierotti, Des Tobin, Sally-Anne Watson Kane and Tim Syrota on the day who gave each and every onlooker great insight into what’s involved with life story documenting.

We certainly showed the depth and breadth of our professional body.
