We have a great evening planned with Melinda Tognini on 2 March 2016. Thanks to KSP Writers’ Centre and Shire of Mundaring Libraries, people will be able to enjoy a talk by Melinda on writing and her new book.
Melinda Tognini is passionate about telling ‘invisible’ stories – those stories absent from or sidelined in the dominant narratives of our history – and empowering others to find their voice. Her recently published book, Many Hearts One Voice: The Story of the War Widows’ Guild in Western Australia, is one such ‘invisible story’.
When WWII ended, the men who fought and died were not forgotten –but for the War Widows’ Guild the fight for rights and recognition had just begun. This is the story of a courageous group of women who made a difference to the lives of Australia’s war widows of yesterday and today.
