"The View from Connor's Hill" - Barry Heard, Twilight Series Lecture

To commemorate Vietnam Week, the Barker Institute will host Mr Barry Heard, Vietnam Veteran and author of several books to our Twilight Series Lecture. Come and hear Barry as he shares with us the lost world of country life in Australia, a place that saved him in his recovery from the trauma of war. Barry will expand also on his book ‘TAG’ which is based on Jack Campbell, an old WWI soldier from the Victorian High Country.

Barry Heard visits Barker annually and speaks to Year Ten students on Vietnam Day about his experiences during and after the war. He encourages students to create a journal where they can articulate the challenges and joys of their lives.

As part of Vietnam Day, Barry Heard will be presenting to the Year Ten students on Friday 29th June.

We invite you to come and meet Barry on Wednesday 27th June.
