Many Such As She

  • Soldiers Memorial Institute Military Museum 37-39 Pall Mall Bendigo, VIC, 3550 Australia (map)

Michael Sharkey, Kirsten McKay. Kate Stones

Poet and critic Michael Sharkey began researching women poets’ responses to the First World War many years ago, keen to find out why so little had been collected and why it was so long neglected. After decades of discovery, and revelations about what kinds of writing was deemed acceptable to commemorate Australia at war, Michael’s book presents a surprising and strong collection of women writing in the state of Victoria during and after the war. To celebrate the beautiful restoration of Bendigo’s Soldiers Memorial Institute Military Museum and their elegant new gallery space, Michael is joined in conversation by curator Kirsten McKay, with readings of a selection of the poems by actor Kate Stones.
