Lantern Lunch in the Southern Highlands

I was privileged to be the guest speaker at the Lantern Lunch recently held at Hopewood House in the Southern Highlands. The charity lunch was raising money for The Australian Institute for Deaf and Blind Children. Held in the magnificent grounds of the grand Hopewood House, the event included lunch followed by a talk about the collection and a book signing. It was a very elegant affair!
