North Sydney Sunrise

We are men and women who meet regularly in North Sydney for fellowship, networking and breakfast!

It's a great way to make new friends. We come from many walks of life and backgrounds with a common goal - service to the community (local and worldwide) through fellowship.

The club is holding a Social Dinner on the 16th March at Ivan & Lissie's. All members, partners and friends are invited.

See details below.

09 March 2021  - A Bookshop in Wartime

Jenny Horsfield  

Verity Hewitt’s fabled bookshop was the only such shop in Canberra during the Second World War. Governor General Lord Gowrie called it ‘the nicest little bookshop in Australia’. It became a meeting place for diplomats, service men and women, artists and writers, public servants and the Canberra community, which was changing from a country town to a capital city under the pressures of war.

Jenny Horsfield will talk about this renowned bookshop.

Jenny Horsfield is a Canberra writer and historian. Her book, ‘Rainbow: the story of Rania MacPhillamy’ won the award for Non-Fiction Book of the Year in the 2008 ACT Writers and Publishers awards
