For Your Best Look Since 1979 Award-winning, best-selling author, multi-published author and public speaker, Barbara Dickson will be speak- ing on her book Bomb Girls–Trading Aprons for Ammo. The book is a comprehensive, historical record of Canada’s biggest WWll munitions plant (“GECO”) employing over 21,000 citizens, predominately women, who courageously worked with high explosives around the clock over its four-year history. A unique, intimate and extraordinary glimpse into the lives and hearts of these dedicated Canadians. Barb had in-person interviews with the women who risked their lives and their stories reveal tenacity, dedication, patriot- ism and a resolve in a time when the concept of women working outside the home was a cultural anomaly. Admission is $10 per person, and takes place at the Scugog Shores Heritage Centre & Archives, 1655 Reach St., (second floor) Port Perry.
