Australia Day Virtual Events

Although the libraries are closed for the Australia Day public holiday you can still enjoy these virtual events. Registration is required.

The Man who invented Vegemite

Presented by Jamie Callister

Vegemite is one of Australia's most enduring cultural icons. But how did it come to be created? 

More than 20 million jars of Vegemite are sold every year, but when it was first produced in the 1920s it was met with little public interest. It took fifteen more years and one War before perceptions changed. Join Jamie Callister (author of The man who invented Vegemite) as he talks about the grandfather he never met in a story that spans the Gold Rush, the Great Depression and two World Wars and recognizes the quiet achievements (as well as tragedies) of one extraordinary man. 

The presentation will be available for viewing from 26 January. To receive a link to the YouTube video book now on TryBooking.
