Sheryl Nostrini Book Chat
Things to do
Sheryl Nostrini will talk about her book "Emilia and the Monument Builder"
The book is based on the true story of the man who built the block base of the Desert Mounted Corps Memorial on Mt Clarence. Jack Nostrini was the author's father in law.
The book portrays Jack's family life in Italy, their hardships during WW11, to their initial struggles as European immigrants and Jack's role in building the monument.
In 1962, Jack Nostrini took great pride in reconstructing the blocks of the memorial base after it had been salvaged from Port Said where the statue was damaged during the 1956 Suez Crisis uprising.
