EXCLUSIVE EVENT I AFTERNOON TEA I The Wonderful World of Merlyn Myer. With Michael Shmith

Thursday 23 Feb 2023, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The life of Dame Merlyn Myer (1900-1982) was transformed when, in 1920, she married department-store magnate Sidney Myer.

After Sidney's untimely death in 1934, Merlyn, widowed with a young family, practically re-invented herself.

Over the next almost-fifty years, she carried the Myer name and fame. My recent biography brings long-deserved attention to this grand) glorious and generous figure.

MICHAEL SHMITH is a Melbourne author and editor who spent many years as a writer and commentator for The Age.

His books have included not only the biography of Dame Merlyn Myer Merlyn - The Life of Merlyn Baillieu Myer but also the recently published Cranlana: the First 100 Years.

He is contemplating an autobiography.

This lecture is presented on-site at TJC. Please see your ticket for details.

This lecture is supported by The Friends of TJC.
