The City of Vincent Library welcomes back Perth author and writer Melinda Tognini to talk about her book, Many Hearts One Voice.
When the Second World War ended, the men who fought and died were not forgotten—but what of their wives and families? For the War Widows’ Guild, the fight for rights and recognition had just begun. Join author Melinda Tognini as she shares the story of a courageous group of women who are often omitted from existing historical narratives, but whose determination, tenacity and refusal to accept their lot made a difference to the lives of Australia’s war widows of yesterday and today.
