Shaping History into Fiction: talk by Dianne Wolfer
9 May @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Award winning author Dianne Wolfer discusses how she combined research, archival photographs, telegrams and letters with imaginative storytelling to craft the historical narrative, In the Lamplight.
Rose O’Reilly’s sheltered life in the peaceful English village of Harefield takes an unexpected turn with the outbreak of war in 1914. As the war progresses, and slouch hats fill the village green, Rose’s skills grow and she begins training alongside Australian nurses. Then, a new patient arrives, Sergeant Jim O’Donnell is unable to walk and his eyes are bandaged, but he will change Rose’s life forever.
In the Lamplight is a companion title for Lighthouse Girl and Light Horse Boy (Fremantle Press).
