Hand-milking a cow (State Library of South Australia, B 7798/377)

From Dulwich to Dairy Farm: Women and Change During World War II

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. Bookings essential.
