About My Grandma is 100
My Grandma is 100 is a picture storybook about the relationship between young children and their grandparents and great-grandparents. It focuses a child's wonder, awe and interest in what it means for someone to turn 100 years old.
When someone has 100 year old ears, can they hear you to answer questions? When someone has 100 year old teeth, what kinds of food can they eat? How many candles do you put on a 100 year old person's birthday cake? And what present do you buy for someone who is turning 100? Based on the story of a real centenarian, My Grandma is 100 explores those essential intergenerational relationships and gives a glimpse into just how much things have changed in 100 years.
This exhibition is held in conjunction with Write around the Murray, 2020
