John Wadsley writes to inform us of this talk to be held on Tuesday 6 June 2017, 12 noon to 1pm, Royal Society Room in TMAG, Davey Street entrance. 

'This is going to be a great presentation with Assoc. Prof Elizabeth Leane from UTAS coming along to talk on how Antarctica has influenced literature and the arts.Elizabeth is a published author on Antarctic themes and this should be an interesting, and perhaps quirky, look at how authors have seen the Antarctic.' 

As I recall Biggles encountered polar bears in Antarctica in one of his later adventures:  maybe we will find out about that.  Details in attached flyer (http://bit.ly/2q2ppLp).
