Another side of the Fairbridge Farm Story

A book launch for The Long Way Home – by Jo Bailey with Ronnie Sabin will be held in these locations tomorrow Friday 12 March:
Meet the authors at the front of Jayes Gallery and Cafe from 10am – 12 noon
31 – 33 Gidley Street, Molong or
Boomers' Bookshop, City Centre, Orange
2pm – 4pm. The book is promoted as the story of Fairbridge Farm School that needs to be told. “At last a balanced account of life at Fairbridge through the eyes of Ronnie Sabin, who for six years in the 1950s called Fairbridge Farm School at Molong home. Often hilarious, sometimes heart-wrenching, The Long Way Home adds a positive perspective to the Child Migrant Scheme debate. It pays tribute to Fairbridge and details Ronnie's delight as finally being reunited with his family in England after 55 years. ”
It retails for $29.95
