About the event

A rare opporunity for non-members to join members for this delicious literary lunch featuring author Oliver Greeves as guest speaker. Enjoy sparkling wine on arrival, lunch and dessert with matching wines in this luxury historical venue in the heart of Sydney's CBD for $65.

Oliver will discuss his experiences as an author, especially what he has learned from his debut novel Nelson’s Folly; a compelling exploration of duty, love and honour in all its forms. It is a sweeping, historically rich novel based on the true story of Admiral Lord Horatio and Fanny Nelson and their lives together – and apart. Oliver is currently finalising his second novel Nelson’s Lost Son.

A direct descendant of Frances (Fanny), Viscountess Nelson and her son, Josiah Nisbet, Oliver, spent most of his career as a Wall Street banker. Long fascinated by Fanny’s life and times, he has travelled extensively researching her story and the turbulent times of the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic War. He has now embarked on recreating stories of the era based on historical fact, while using fiction and his experience in business to explore the psyche and characters behind the myths.
