Free – $5
ID: a sketch of a soldier and a horse - part of the cover of The Last Light Horse by Dianne Wolfer

There were 136,000 Australian horses sent to fight during the First World War. Just one came home. From the high country of Victoria to the desert sand of Egypt, from the waters off Gallipoli to the battlefields of France, this is the extraordinary story of Sandy, the only returning warhorse.

The fourth and final book in the Light series, which began with Lighthouse Girl and includes the CBCA shortlisted Light Horse Boy.

Join Dianne Wolfer & special guests for an engaging and insightful afternoon as she shares the story behind the story of The Last Light Horse.

Original Artworks by Artist and illustrator Brian Simmonds will be available for sale at the event.

Paperbark Merchants will conduct book sales at the event.

The money from all ticket sales will be donated to the ‘Sandy the War Horse Memorial’, a group in Tallangatta fundraising to build a statue in the town Sandy was from.

Proof of Double Vaccination is required upon entry to this event. Masks are mandatory.
