In the aftermath of the Battle of Britain, airmen filled a small English town where pioneering plastic surgeon Archibald McIndoe established revolutionary surgery. For the child Liz Byrski, growing up in East Grinstead, the burnt faces of these airmen filled her nightmares. In her late 60s, Liz returned to make peace with her memories and to speak not only with the survivors – known as the Guinea Pig Club – but with their former nurses. Acclaimed WA author Liz Byrski and The West Australian’s Literary Editor William Yeoman present readings, with music, from Byrski’s moving new book In Love and War and Richard Hillary’s The Last Enemy, followed by an in-conversation.
This event will be held in Mount Lawley Bowling Club on the 21 June 2015, from 2:30pm. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase drinks and meet Liz and Will following the reading.
All proceeds will be donated to the Fiona Wood Foundation.
