My story, by Louis Roller @ Online (Zoom)
Oct 13 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Louis Roller was born in Paris of Jewish parents three months before the fall of Paris to the Nazis. Despite life-threatening events and many near-misses, Louis survived the holocaust and arrived in Australia in 1947. He was the first refugee seen at the primary school he went to, had no English and was highly traumatised. Despite all this, Louis has managed to have a successful academic career in pharmacy and medicine. This talk will focus on Louis’ journey from hunted untermensch to successful academic.

Desert island crime fiction @ Online (Zoom)
Oct 27 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

What crime novel would you want with you if you were stranded on a desert island? Fiona Malcolm will kick things off with some of her ‘must take’ and most re-read crime novels. Then it is your turn. Tell us about your ‘must take’ or most re-read crime novel or sit back and listen to what others have enjoyed.

This talk will be given by Fiona Malcolm. Fiona moved into public libraries 30 something years ago where she shared her love of crime fiction with all and sundry. She can’t remember when she didn’t want to be a librarian. From the moment she saw Batman on TV (Adam West version) and discovered that Batgirl was a librarian, her future was sealed. What could be better? Librarian by day, crime fighter by night. Fiona started work at the Melbourne Athenaeum Library in March 2020, just in time to close the library due to Covid-19.
