A Town Named War Boy

Organiser:  City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder

Date:  4th May

Time:  6:30pm

Venue:  Goldfields Arts Centre

Details:  Based on the State Library of NSW’s jaw-dropping collection of First World War diaries, photographs and letters, “A Town Named War Boy” brings to life the personal accounts of the young men that set sail for the far side of the world.  Some of these diaries and letters are finished, others just stop.  When you read them you meet the person, see the changes in their hand writing, feel the indentation of the pen, the smudges of changed thoughts.  Our young past is captured, alive and preserved.

Developed and presented in partnership with the State Library of NSW.
