Event description
Join Elizabeth Hutchins, author of Troop Train, to explore how war changed the lives of a diverse range of women.

About this event

It’s February 1942. With Japanese planes bombing Darwin, Adelaide fears an invasion.

Amid this tension, a teenager, her life up-ended, begins a diary to store memories for her missing father. Join Elizabeth Hutchins, author of Troop Train, to explore how war changed the lives of a diverse range of women.

Extensive research underpins this novel. Elizabeth will share material amassed from books, newspapers, a war bride’s memoir, the National War Memorial, ex-service personnel, a train aficionado, parents of ‘rubella babies’ – and a retired farmer. Anecdotes from family and friends enhance her earliest memories, while photographs and memorabilia are also treasured.

Light refreshments provided.
