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.
