Record your memories and experiences of the Geelong Ladies Reading Circle for future generations.

The Geelong Ladies Reading Circle is one of the longest running reading circles in Australia. With records dating back to 1907, the Geelong Ladies Reading Circle is a significant group in Geelong’s social history. Kim barne thaliyu / Geelong Heritage Centre holds a collection of the group’s minute books and memorabilia and are currently seeking oral history contributions from past and present members.

Participation involves an audio recorded interview with Deakin University researcher, Jacquelyn Baker. You can choose whether you would like the interview to take place at the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre or at your home. Interviews will run for approximately 1-2 hours and questions will relate to your motivations for joining the Reading Circle; your experiences with the group; and your hopes for the future of the Reading Circle and its place in Geelong. Audio recordings will be held by Kim barne thaliyu / Geelong Heritage Centre for future generations. You will receive a $10 Book Bird voucher upon the completion of the interview.

If you are a past or present member and would like to contribute your perspectives, experiences and memories to this project, please contact Jacquelyn Baker via email with your expression of interest: bakerjacq@deakin.edu.au

If you have any questions or would like any further information, please contact Jacquelyn Baker or Lucy Davies at the Geelong Heritage Centre, phone: (03) 4201 0630.  

This project has received Deakin University ethics approval (reference number: HAE 22 073).
