Meeting Room

Bookshop owner and author Lorraine Smith reveals the results of her eighteen months of research in this fascinating easy-to-read narrative.

In 2014 a customer in a Warrnambool second hand bookshop found a sixteenth century parchment from Yorkshire inside a copy of Alice in Wonderland.

Book shop owner and author Lorraine Smith joins us to reveal the fascinating results of her 18 months of research into this old world discovery.

Now, 100 years after the parchment was brought to Australia, Lorraine and husband Neil are taking it back ‘home’ to Yorkshire where it will be donated to the West Yorkshire Archives.

Book sales and book signing will be available at the event.
