Event Description

Join us for a celebration and exploration of memoir with author, writer, critic and columnist, Helen Elliott.

Her recently published book, Eleven Letters to You, features letters to eleven important people in her younger years (the Memoir stops when she is 22)
who changed the course of her life. They were neighbours, friends, teachers and many local identities. She will speak about her life and expectations in those pre-feminist days when she knew she did not want to be whatever it was that had been mapped out for her in a small house with a view of the beautiful Dandenongs.

Helen grew up in Elsie St, Boronia. She went to Boronia High, worked in the PMG, the Box Hill Library, went to Monash university and then to Oxford on a
PHD scholarship.
Her writing has been published in the SMH, Vogue, The Herald Sun & The Monthly amongst many others and for many years she had a regular column about life in The Age.
