Pearls: Wisdom of Women Who are Quietly Changing the World
Pearls is a series of 41 heartfelt, intimate, face to face interviews with a broad spectrum of women across NSW. Taking two years to complete, the author and her journalist daughter travelled over 12,000 km criss-crossing the state in search of both remarkable and everyday stories from a vibrant cast of curious, creative and inspirational personalities.
From firefighters to strip tease artists, from creatives to regenerative farmers, from authors to astrophysicists, each of these women have made different choices, followed unexpected paths, learnt lessons and nourished those around them.
Their stories are a gentle reminder that there's many ways to live a life.
About the author: Pearls was written by travel writer and photographer Angela Schaffer, in partnership with her daughter Liz, the editor of Lodestars Anthology magazine.
For them, travelling and working together as a mother-daughter-duo was a privilege and an adventure. As Angela writes, “How often do mother and daughter have the chance to sit together and hear women speak so honestly, and learn not only from each other, but also those around them?”
