Words with Wine: Deborah Burrows
Thu. 20 April 2017, 6:15 pm – 7:30 pm AWST
Deborah Burrows was born and grew up in Perth. She is the author of four popular novels set in the Second World War. The latest is Ambulance Girls, which is the first of a trilogy set in the London Blitz. Her inspiration is her late mother, who was widowed by the long shadow of that war and who told many stories about living in wartime, and about the exploits of Deborah’s war hero father.
Her ‘day job’ is in the Law, but she has a passion for history. And although she loves the clear skies, beautiful beaches and easy-going atmosphere of her home town, she also adores the dreaming spires of Oxford, UK, where she read medical history. She now sees herself as a proud citizen of both Perth and Oxford and divides her time between the two.
Doors open at 6.15pm when wine and cheese are served. The author is introduced promptly at 6.30pm.
