tinticket In celebration of Women's History Month, Harwich resident and historian Deborah Swiss will discuss her latest book, The Tin Ticket: The Heroic Journey of Australia's Convict Women on Saturday, March 7 @ 2:oo pm . During the nineteenth century, 25,000 girls and women were transported to Australia from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales as "tamers and breeders."  A compelling true story about the human spirit, The Tin Ticket won runner-up honors in 2011 for Best Non-Fiction book, awarded by the American Society of Journalists and Authors.  It focuses on three remarkable survivors, ordinary women who lived extraordinary lives as they triumphed over tragedy and emerged as founding mothers of Australia.  Their journey also includes the story of Elizabeth Gurney Fry, a Quaker reformer who compassionately touched their lives.  After Deborah's talk, singer/songwriter Digney Fignus will perform "All for Love," a song he wrote to honor Australia's convict maids and survivors everywhere.
