South Perth Libraries Local History invites you to an author talk from Dr Leigh Straw; academic, historian and author. Her latest book After the War uses the personal struggles of soldiers and their families to increase public understanding of the legacies of World War I in Western Australia and across the nation.

In this deeply personal account, Leigh seeks a better understanding of what soldiers experienced once the fighting stopped. The scars of war - mental and physical - can be lifelong for soldiers who serve their country.

This is a free event, bookings essential.

Refreshments and book sales and signing available on the night.
