Friends of the Durning Library Extra Talk – Jenni Murray ‘A History of Britain in 21 Women’: 13th May
This month, as part of Lambeth Readers’ and Writers’ Festival, there will be an extra talk on Monday, 13th May.
Journalist, broadcaster and BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour presenter Jenni Murray will discuss the history of Britain as you’ve never seen it before, through the lives of twenty-one women who refused to succumb to the established laws of society, whose lives embodied hope and change, and who still have the power to inspire us today. They were famous queens, unrecognised visionaries, great artists and trailblazing politicians. They all pushed back boundaries and revolutionised our world.
Copies of her book, A History of Britain in 21 Women, will be on sale.
Everyone is welcome. Light refreshments are available. A £2 donation towards costs is invited.
