SMEDG Life Member, Garry Lowder, will introduce his recently published memoir with a retrospective reflection on some of the people, places and experiences that have made his life as a geologist so satisfying. Over more than 50 years, geology has taken him to countless distant and exotic parts of the world, both in Australia and overseas. As Garry says: “In those places, I have met some wonderful people, some bizarre people, and people who have influenced my life very much for the better. I have had numerous adventures and surprising encounters – some a bit hazardous and frightening, many joyous and rewarding. There have been a few wins and plenty of losses but together, these people and the experiences I shared with them have shaped me as a person and formed a bond with the natural world that makes me extremely grateful it was geology that became my life’s work.” The talk will be followed with several readings from the book, highlighting the diversity of a long and rewarding career in geology. Copies of the book can be purchased on the night.
