Historical Society President, Peter Jones, author, Ron Irlam and John Wearne AM who launched Mr. Irlam’s newest book, Bush Capital Babies at the Bingara Library.

Mr. Irlam interviewed 40 people who were born in Canberra in the 1930s, or came with parents and went to school in the newly forming Bush Capital.

He chose Bingara as the venue for the first launch in recognition of the support he was given by the Bingara Historical Society.

The book was launched by John Wearne AM who wrote the foreword for the book.
A full report of the opening will appear in the Bingara Advocate next week.
