In 2013 authors Julie Kaeser and Julie Thomson, published a book "Celebrating Caboolture Women" with stories of some 42 local women, which proved to be quite a success for them.
This year they are launching their latest work "High, Hot and a Hell of a Lot" at the Caboolture Hub Library, 4 Hasking St, Caboolture on Saturday, December 5th, from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm.
They were inspired by a number of popular 2015 television programs, including "Call the Midwife", and "The Anzac Girls" and wished to honour local nurses. Initially they set out to find people with a medical connection to the Great War, but found none, so decided to tell the stories of local medical women "before they too, can no longer be found."
I will not spoil here the story of how the title came to be, though some nurses may recall the words from their nursing days. It is a good story and I am sure the other stories in the book will provide a great read especially for anyone with an understanding of the medical world.
Many of the women featured in the new book will be at the launch. Anyone wishing to attend can RSVP to Julie Kaiser 0n 0409577898 or Julie Thomson on 0427 723 198. There is no cost, but they would love you to buy the book!
