Loretta Smith in conversation with Claire Halliday

When one of Loretta Smith’s aged care clients dropped a bombshell and mentioned that her mother worked as a driver and mechanic for Alice Anderson, Loretta knew her fascination with this ground-breaking feminist had to be shared.

A Spanner in the Works

The result is Loretta’s debut book, Spanner in the Works: The extraordinary story of Alice Anderson and Australia’s first all-girl garage.

This book shines a light on a remarkably
unique slice of Melbourne history and helps reveal Alice’s extraordinary life, and the tragedy of her untimely death.
