April 2018 General Meeting

History Redcliffe will be pleased to welcome local author, James Lergessner, as our Guest Speaker in April. Mr Lergessner has written over a dozen books, many of which concern our local history.

Over a 23-year period, Dr Lergessner has spoken at many clubs in Brisbane and Queensland. His talks have been much in demand as a professional author; renowned biographer; humorist; historian; and as an amusing experienced presenter. In January 2018, he produced a book, entitled “MY BRISBANE REDISCOVERED” about iconic local events and characters in Brisbane from the 1950s to the present. This will be the topic of the presentation.
