There is so much in my first two novels that can generate discussion among women of a certain age. A couple of weeks ago I gave a talk at the local EACH group.
The local Wynnum EACH office is located in the same building as my office so it was an easy presentation to make.
It’s only through my office location so close by that I became aware of EACH’s activities – and this is direct from their website – http://www.each.com.au
EACH provides an integrated range of health, disability, counselling and community mental health services across Australia.
I’ve donated my books to their small library. Part of their charter is to provide social interaction for the lonely and that’s a fine ambition.
With my first book beginning in 1942, I was able to talk with women who lived the experience of war, lived the experience of a more restricted moral code and remembered not only the threat of war but the fashions at a time when they were young women and the world that they inhabited.
It brought out their own stories and I was delighted to listen to them.
