What lies Beyond the Rock?

Wednesday 8 August, 7pm–8pm

Glen Eira Town Hall — Theatrette


Janelle McCulloch’s book Beyond the Rock, looks at not just the myth of Picnic at Hanging Rock and how it became part of Australia’s literary and cinematic culture, but also the story behind it. In it she examines author Joan Lindsay’s enigmatic life, her privileged, upper-class Edwardian childhood, her often vexed marriage to Daryl Lindsay, their enduring love and unconventional bohemian life, and her life at Mulberry Hill, the Lindsay’s own arcadia deep in the Victorian countryside.

Janelle tells the story of one of Australia’s most famous novels, and the enigmatic author who kept its secrets until she died.
