Lingering Doubts Book Launch
Our book launch is shaping up to be something else!! Publishers John, Lily and Beth McRobert are putting in an extraordinary effort to ensure a memorable evening for all.
We feel so honoured (and humbled) to have our guest speaker Bob Bottom OAM one of Australia's most respected crime reporters, travel from interstate especially for the launch of Lingering Doubts. Bob has been involved in 18 Royal Commissions, and is a keen observer of and commentator on the Australian legal system. 250 guests are expected - family, friends, supporters, and an impressive list of dignitaries and people from the media. Family are travelling from central and western Queensland and also from Melbourne.
The Regatta Hotel staff too are enthusiastic supporters of this event and value our family's connection to the Winterfords, the original owners of this historic building. We seem to be pinching ourselves on a daily basis! As usual this story makes its own way. The book launch coincides with the 7 day Supreme Court trial that saw our grandfather sentenced to life imprisonment in Boggo Road Gaol 67 years ago. Looking forward to seeing you at the Regatta,
Deb and Jan
