Aveo Peregian Springs Country Club Welcome Author, Allison Paterson

In early April the Aveo Peregian Springs Country Club retirement village on the Sunshine Coast hosted a ‘meet the author’ session featuring Allison Paterson, author of ‘Anzac Sons’. 26 village residents, and their friends and family members attended the event and enjoyed a delicious Devonshire morning tea of scones, jam and cream while listening to Allison discuss her book. Allison is the director of the Learning Centre at St Andrew’s Anglican College in Peregian Springs and wrote ‘Anzac Sons’ as an account of the Great War experiences of five brothers drawn from a collection of over 500 letters written to their loved ones back home. The letters, penned by Allison’s grandfather and four of his brothers, were sent from the training grounds of Victoria, from Egypt, England and the battlefields of the Western Front during World War I. Allison’s visit was timed perfectly to coincide with the Anzac Centenary and gave all who attended the chance to reflect and recognised those who have served.
