Afternoon Tea with Sasha Wasley

Past Event

Join bestselling author Sasha Wasley who will be chatting about the WA history that went into her new book, Snapshots from Home.

The book, set in 1917, explores the journey of Edie Stark, a young woman who volunteers for the YMCA's wartime Snapshots from Home League. Edie is a teacher in the wheatbelt town of York, and in her spare time visits soldiers' homes to photograph their loved ones. Taking place against the backdrop of World War One, the Great Strike and the 1917 conscription referendum, and with scenes set in Albany, York, Midland and Guildford, guests will enjoy hearing the history and seeing images of familiar WA spots.

Sasha lives and works in the Perth hills. She is the author of Spring Clean for the Peach Queen (2021) and A Caravan like a Canary (2022).

Join her for a chat about her new book Snapshots from Home, drawn from the true stories of Australians during WWI, this is historical fiction at its best.
