Meet the Author: Jennifer Horsfield

Bring your lunch and join us for a chat with Jenny about her book Mary Cunningham – An Australian Life.

Mary Cunningham lived at Tuggeranong Homestead from the 1880s to 1914. Her life was bound up with some of the great stories of early nationhood: the prosperity brought by wool, the arrival of Federation, the imperial enthusiasms of the Edwardian era, the creation of the national capital, and the sorrows and losses of the Great War.
