Life on the home front

Wordpress_women_(Small)This year History Week, from 6-14 September, commemorates ‘The Great War’.

To coincide with the event City of Canada Bay Library Service will be hosting a History Council of NSW talk by Patricia Curthoys. ‘Prayers, parcels and poetry: the Protestant Church and the Great War’ explores the response of Protestant churches, in New South Wales, to the First World War. The talk provides a fascinating glimpse into this aspect of life on the home front during the war.

Patricia’s talk will be at Concord Library on Saturday, 6 September at 2pm. Bookings can be made at Concord Library or online.
