A Different Kind of Seeing: In Conversation with Marie Younan and Jill Sanguinetti
The Vision Australia Library is delighted to invite Vision Australia clients and library members to its first live In Conversation event for 2021. Please note this event was initially scheduled to run in March but has been postponed to May.

Marie and Jill will be in conversation with Bill Jolley, a leader in the blind community. This evening in person at Vision Australia Kooyong will also include refreshments and canapes as we celebrate this title and hear from the authors.
When: Please note NEW date Wednesday May 19, 6pm – 7.30pm (AEDT) at Vision Australia Kooyong. Online streaming also available.
