Author Event - Lainie Anderson - Long Flight Home - Portland Library
Wednesday, September 4, 2019
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Author Event - Lainie Anderson
Join author and journalist Lainie Anderson as she launches her novel Long Flight Home. Based on a true story, this is a tale that spans the decades and crosses the globe, and at journey’s end we’re left peering down from an open cockpit on two beacons of truth. Where there is no heroism without honour and there is no legacy without love.

Long Flight Home is a historical novel based on the flight, ‘a boys’ own adventure for girls’. Narrated by real-life crew member Wally Shiers, it’s a true story about Australians taking on the world and winning. Sir Ross Smith and his four-man crew (co-pilot, navigator and brother Keith Smith, and co-mechanics Wally Shiers and Jim Bennett) flew an open-cockpit Vickers Vimy aircraft – made of wood, fabric and wire – nearly 18,000 kilometres across the world, smashing the previous record set by a long-distance flight of just over 5,000 kilometres (from Cairo to Calcutta, a year earlier). The achievement was the forerunner to the age of international air travel, and led to the founding of Qantas, Australia’s first airline (and the world’s third oldest) in 1920.

Lainie Anderson has been a weekly columnist with Adelaide’s Sunday Mail since 2007, and previously worked at the Herald Sun in Melbourne and the Times in London. In 2017 she travelled to nine countries on a Churchill Fellowship to gauge the significance of the pioneering 1919 flight from England to Australia and the Vickers Vimy aircraft now housed at Adelaide Airport. She is South Australia’s Epic Flight Centenary 2019 program ambassador.

Submerged Exhibition - Portland Library
Monday, September 23, 2019
to Saturday, November 2, 2019

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Submerged Exhibition
Glenelg Libraries is excited to welcome Submerged an exhibition presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council. Following a national project with workshops held across the country to develop the exhibition and to source shipwreck stories, 68 shipwreck stories were nominated by 46 maritime museums and heritage institutions from around Australia with 14 of the most compelling stories selected to feature in the exhibition.

Australia’s coast is the final resting place of over 11,000 shipwrecks – roughly one wreck for every three kilometres of coastline. And Victoria’s City of Rayville is one of 14 wrecks whose stories will feature in a nationally touring panel exhibition Submerged – Stories of Australia’s Shipwrecks uncovering Australia’s rich shipwreck history.

The City of Rayville is said to be the first American ship sunk during World War II. It was carrying a cargo of lead from Port Pirie to New York in 1940 when it struck a sea-mine off Cape Otway. All but one of its 38 crew members escaped.

The exhibition also features wrecks of merchant vessels, steamers, schooners, whalers and a submarine. The oldest wreck featured is WA’s Batavia. Its 1629 loss on Beacon Island, and subsequent mutiny, is one of the most dramatic events in Dutch and Australian history.
