Book Launch: Mayfield Girl

MacLean’s Booksellers
69 Beaumont Street, Newcastle, NSW, 2303

Join us for the book launch of ‘Mayfield Girl’, a memoir of Newcastle and Country NSW by Jean Sharp, edited by Stephen Wallace.

Jean recalls in remarkable detail the big and small events of Australian 20th century life: her school years during World War I, the growth of Mayfield and Newcastle, domestic life in the early 20th century, her training and work as a midwife in the slums of Sydney and country NSW, life in the country towns of Warialda and Moree in northern NSW during World War II, and her unhappy marriage and bringing up four children. But also, ‘Mayfield Girl’ is Jean’s brave and honest account of her personal battle with a family secret which, when revealed, devastated her life for years to come.

Event is free. To learn more and book see here:
