This author talk at 11am in Young Library is part of the many events to be held during the Lambing Flat Chinese Festival. Robyn Atherton describes herself as an accidental author and is passionate about researching the history of the Harden Murrumburrah region in which she lives. Over the past decade she's produced four local histories from her research, which she wants to be accessible and easy to read. Her work 'They were More than Just Gold Diggers - the Chinese of Murrumburrah and surrounding districts 1860's to 1960's' was compiled from newspaper reports, oral histories and archived records. This will be topic of Robyn's presentation at the Lambing Flat Chinese Festival this year, which takes place at 11am at the Young Library.
