The Friends of Wollongong City Library present A Literary Lunch with Helen Glad, granddaughter of author and artist, Norman Lindsay.
Helen Glad played a pivotal role in the celebration of 100 years since Norman Lindsay's classic children's book The Magic Pudding, was first published. Join us as she talks about these celebrations in conversation with Robert Holden.
Believing wholeheartedly that children preferred food to fairies, Norman Lindsay concocted a recipe for success that has lingered for one hundred years.
