Event Description

Loretta Smith brings Australia's first all-girl garage to life in her book, 'A Spanner in the Works'. Come along and find out more about the extraordinary life of Alice Anderson.

From the end of the Great War and into the 1920s, Alice Anderson was considered a national treasure, excelling as a motoring entrepreneur and inventor. Alice was the first woman in Australia to successfully pull off an almost impossible feat: without family or husband to back her financially, she built a garage and established the country's first motor service run entirely by women. Find out more about this fascinating character with author Loretta Smith.
