About the book:
"Last year's film 'Balibo' re-ignited public awareness of the six Australian
journalists murdered in East Timor in 1975. Shirley Shackleton, widow of
journalist Greg Shackleton, has now told her side of the story in an
engaging, funny, gutsy and often heart-rending memoir. Hers is an
extraordinary life: from public relations career-woman to motherhood, and
then following the loss of her husband, nearly 35 years of activism."
Nicola Robinson, 'Bookseller and Publisher' magazine.
This event is sponsored by the City of Yarra.
