Welcome to Judy Nunn’s Khaki Town
24 October @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Judy Nunn’s exciting new novel, Khaki Town, is inspired by a true wartime story that has remained a well kept secret for over seventy years.
It’s March 1942. Singapore has fallen. Darwin has been bombed. Australia is on the brink of being invaded by the Imperial Japanese Forces.
Overnight the small Queensland city of Townsville is transformed into the transport hub for 70,000 American and Australian soldiers destined for combat in the South Pacific.
Barbed wire and gun emplacements cover the beaches and the dance halls are in full swing with jazz, jitterbug and jive. Tensions are high ,then the violence explodes…
Refreshments will be available.
