History Illuminated

History Illuminated

History Illuminated 2020 asks the question: “What is history good for?” With the year packed with bushfires, protests and pandemics, these events from the present back to the past have roots linked in history that has seldom been so important in the present day.

Presented by Lake Mac Libraries and NSW History Council, History Illuminated celebrates our history with a program full of discussions, lectures and presentations on historical fiction, fact, research, and writing.

All events are run with COVID safe precautions, social distancing and additional hygiene measures are in place. Masks are recommended.
