Jane Tolerton is working on a book about the women doctors, nurses, volunteers and writers who played a role in the war overseas.
Jane is the author of the best-selling book An Awfully Big Adventure: New Zealand World War One veterans tell their stories. The book is largely based on oral histories that are now available at the Alexander Turnbull Library, as the World War I Oral History Archive. She also wrote the New Zealand Book Award-winning Ettie, a biography of safe sex campaigner Ettie Rout.
If you have diaries, letters, memoirs, and photographs of these women please contact her firstname.lastname@example.org as she wants to produce a book that is full of personal stories and first-person accounts. It will be a female companion volume to An Awfully Big Adventure. Similarly, it will tell the story of the war chronologically through the eyes of New Zealand participants.
More workshops will be scheduled for later in the year. Please contact ATLOutreach@dia.govt.nz for more information
