Congratulations to Kristen Alexander, ACT Literary Award winner!

Congratulations to Kristen Alexander, whose 2023 publication Kriegies: The Australian Airmen of Stalag Luft III was awarded an ACT Literary Award in the nonfiction category! The judges welcomed this ‘meticulously researched, accessible and wide-ranging study of a group of prisoners of war whose experiences are more encrusted in legend than most’. Predicated on ‘family records and extensive work in public archives’, this book ‘underpins a model social history that contributes to our understanding of the physical and emotional experiences of POWs’. Congratulations, Kristen!
