An acclaimed Australian writer will be one of the guest speakers at the Power of Women event to be held as part of International Dairy Week. Rosalie Ham, author of the sensational bestseller The Dressmaker, which is now an award-winning film, will talk at the event. Ms Ham was born and raised in Jerilderie, NSW, where her family still farm. She now lives in Melbourne, where she teaches literature. Ms Ham has just released her third book The Year of the Farmer.
The other speaker will be Clare Modra, who was awarded the Power of Women in Dairying scholarship in 2017. She has returned from her trip of a lifetime to World Dairy Expo, with the trip made possible through the scholarship. Mrs Modra will present a brief overview of the highlights of her trip.
The Bette Hall Power of Women in Dairy Excellence Award will also be presented at the event, which is raising funds for the next POW scholarship.
