‘Miss Muriel Matters’ – MMS Adelaide Book Launch

The Muriel Matters Society hosted Robert Wainwright, the author of the biography ‘Miss Muriel Matters’ at the Hetzel Theatre at the State Library of South Australia on Thursday. Members enjoyed a wonderful spread of food and drink throughout the event as the author signed books and mingled with those in attendance. Robert gave a talk about Muriel’s upbringing in Adelaide, her stage career, as well as her agitation for women’s suffrage in Britain. The Society’s Secretary, Frances Bedford MP, was on hand to introduce and conclude proceedings as well as congratulate all those members who helped contribute to the research that appears in the book. We wish Robert well as he continues to promote the book throughout Australia. Thanks for all those members who donated their time to help get the space ready and tidying up afterwards!
