“Meet the Author” – Gary Italiaander

Mosaic Culture Hub Invites You To “Meet the Author” – Gary Italiaander
Join us for a light lunch before Gary gives an illustrated talk about his recently published biography ‘My Father’s War’ .
This biography tells some of the unique wartime stories of Michael Italiaander, Gary’s father, who was a Cartographer during WW2 and known to be the youngest war artist, producing propaganda paintings for the Ministry of Information. Michael was based originally in North Wales and then the Middle East, before returning to the UK to work in Army Education. He experienced many unusual and amusing episodes that make this illustrated talk, both fascinating and highly entertaining!
As Michael was a fine-artist and illustrator, the accompanying images Gary will show are quite enlightening.
Please book via the Mosaic website before Wednesday 24th May for catering purposes. If you require a supervised option, please let us know in advance.
There is a £5 charge, which will increase to £7 from Thursday 25th May.
