Ann Howard paints a vivid picture in her latest book of the largest upheaval in Australia since white settlement. This part of Australia's wartime history remains largely untold.

In her book "A Carefree War", Ann depicts stories of over 100 child evacuees during WWII, when Australians feared for their families lives. Australia's coastline was undefended as Singapore fell and Japanese planes flew overhead. Fear gripped society so much so anxious parents sent their young children to 'safety'. Some were told they were going on holiday but for many it would be years before being reunited again.

Join Ann as she speaks about her new book at this FREE event at the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts. Bookings are essential. To book phone 02 9262 7300 or email tkc@smsa.org.au.
