The inaugural Literary High Tea was held yesterday afternoon in New Norfolk at Glen Derwent colonial property.
Much respected Meg Keneally was the guest author. During her excellent presentation, she related true stories of a number of convict characters, with a special focus on Mary Bryant. She also spoke about (my personal favourite convict) William Smith O’Brien who, once pardoned, lived for a time at Glen Derwent.
As for the High Tea itself, well – the photo says it all. A very generous number of perfectly prepared and presented, delicious, sweet and savoury morsels were very well received by all who attended.
