Susanna de Vries on the Australian Heroines of World War One

Australian Heroines of WWI

This event is now in the past.

Join Susanna de Vries as she launches her latest work Australian Heroines of World War One, that tells the stories of eight courageous women.

These women possessed the strength and bravery for which the Anzacs are renowned, combined with great compassion and tenderness. Australian Heroines of World War One conjures an image of each heroine through diaries, letters, original photos, paintings and maps.

Susanna de Vries is the author of 17 biographies and art histories, including Trailblazers and Females on the Fatal Shore.  Many of her books take Australian women as their subject, and in 2012 the Society of Australian Women Writers presented Susanna with the Alice Award for her contribution to Australian literature.

Susanna will be signing copies of her book following the launch.
