At The British Consulate

Sydney based literary societies at the British Consulate in Sydney

On the evening of Friday 8th October 2010 a gathering of Sydney based  English language  literary societies was hosted by the British Consul General,  Richard Morris (pictured left) at The British Consulate in Sydney.  They included;  The Dylan Thomas, Kipling, Jane Austin, Shakespeare, Conan Doyle (The Sydney Passengers),  Bronte,  D.H Lawrence,  Dickens, and Trollope Societies. 

Paul is a member of both the D H Lawrence Society and the Dylan Thomas Society and he was very interesting to learn of the extensive activities of the other Australian groups dedicated to giants of English literature.  Paul has created paintings relating to D H Lawrence and Anthony Trollope who both visited Australia and wrote extensively on their experiences  in the antipodes.
