The latest edition of Seniors’ Stories includes tales of volunteering in Cambodia and war veterans’ relatives connecting decades after World War I.
State Member for Dubbo Troy Grant is encouraging residents of the electorate to get a copy of Seniors’ Stories Volume 4, which includes more than 100 short stories written by seniors.
A copy can be found at public libraries across NSW from December or downloaded from www.seniorscard.nsw.gov.au.
Three seniors from Mudgee have stories in volume 4, including David and Joy Barrow who wrote about positive ageing.
Mr Grant said seniors had “some much to offer”.
“I would urge everyone to download a copy of the book or head to the library to read a copy which is set to make you laugh, cry and be inspired,” he said.
NSW Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies launched the fourth instalment of the much-loved publication while celebrating with its authors at an event at Parliament House in Sydney.
“This book not only gives seniors the chance to bring their precious stories to life, but it allows them to show off their writing skills and connect with others,” she said.
“Society can benefit from the wisdom and knowledge of our seniors and this book allows older people to pass on their stories to younger generations to enjoy as well.”
