A Celebration of Peter Cowan’s Life

The Peter Cowan Writers’ Centre’s (PCWC) contribution to Edith Cowan University’s 25th Anniversary Celebrations is a photographic display of Peter Cowan in Office 2 at Edith Cowan House. Peter Cowan was the grandson of Edith Cowan, the namesake of the university.

In our photographic display, we have a digital display unit which shows pictures of Peter Cowan from a babe in arms through to an elderly man. We also have various large canvas prints and photographs of Peter and members of his family. There is a Cowan family tree and a folio book which shows Peter Cowan in the context of his times.

In addition, we have a listing of all the books and short stories written by Peter Cowan that are housed in our Members Library for anyone interested in researching his distinctive style of writing.

All are welcome to visit the display. The Centre’s opening hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 10am – 3pm.

If you would like more information about Peter Cowan and his work, copies of the PCWC book Homecoming are available for purchase.
