The latest episode of Cover to Cover is now online.
This month our host Meri Fatin meets author Bernice Barry to discuss her book ‘Georgiana Molloy:The Mind That Shines'.
Watch the episode on YouTube here.
Georgiana Molloy’s story as a pioneer West Australian woman and her contribution to the discovery of the unique flora of the State’s South-West is well known. However, Bernice Barry’s biography not only brings Molloy’s life and times alive for readers but shares her years of research. New information about Molloy’s upbringing, John Molloy’s background and their marriage are fascinating. So too is the detail of the hardships and loneliness of Molloy’s early years at Augusta, then Busselton. Dead due to complications from childbirth at 37, Molloy, endured great sorrow in her 12 years in the colony as well as making her name as a self-taught botanist.
