The ACT Heritage Library has launched a new program exploring autobiography, biography and memoir genres presented by local authors.

Announcing it as the Biography Book Club, Libraries ACT said the program series was aimed at demonstrating the library’s wide-ranging collections and its pivotal role in supporting the heritage and history of the Canberra community.

“The ACT Heritage Library aims to enhance the appreciation of Canberra’s community history by collecting and preserving the records of the Australian Capital Territory, and make them available to the public through exhibitions, programs, and events,” Libraries ACT said.

“The Biography Book Club celebrates just one of the ACT Heritage Library’s ongoing collaborations with community organisations, in this case the National Centre for Biography at ANU and Marion, previously known as the ACT Writer’s Centre,” it said.

“The program will be held on the second Saturday of each month from February to November.”

Libraries ACT said local authors and moderators representing multicultural, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island, LGBTQIA+, disability, family, and other elements of the community would be scheduled every month.

“In February we are thrilled to have Subhash Jaireth and Jacqui Malins discussing Spinoza’s Overcoat.”
