Event Description

Full Description:
A talented artist and writer of poetry, plays and prose, Helen Haenke was an influential figure in Ipswich from the 1940s to 1978. The family's historic house Rockton was her creative sanctuary. Please join us for a panel discussion around the works and life of Helen Haenke.

UQ Honorary Senior Research Fellow Dr Bronwen Levy will lead the conversation with Helen's daughter Margot Rayner and local Ipswich resident and drama teacher Helen Pullar.

UQ Press are releasing an anthology of Helen Haenke's work, Helen Haenke at Rockton - A creative life. Copies of the anthology will be for sale at the event.

This event is supported by Ipswich City Council, University of Queensland Library, Ipswich Poetry Feast and University of Queensland Press.
