Between the Dances launches in Sydney with Fran Kelly and Imogen Clark

Between the Dances, a collection of stories from WW2 women, was launched to great success in Sydney on 14 August - a day before the 70th anniversary of VP Day.

RN Breakfast's Fran Kelly officially launched the book, while folk singer Imogen Clark rounded out the event by singing her beautifully poignant song about women in war, While Women Wait.

Author Jacqueline Dinan has been travelling across Australia since the launch of the book in March sharing the stories of these women - two of whom were in attendance to celebrate their contributions to the book.

Peggy Williams was working at a citrus farm in Leeton, Victoria when the war ended. She was interviewed by Fran for RN Breakfast to share her memories from that joyous day. Listen to the audio here.
