Suffragette Stories - Ajay Close & Lucy Ribchester
|Date||Occurs 04/10/2016 - 04/10/2016|
Ajay Close, writer and award-winning journalist, will discuss her acclaimed historical novel, A Petrol Scented Spring which tells the story of the Scottish suffragettes and the prison doctor who force-fed them. A Petrol Scented Spring is a riveting novel of repression, jealousy and love, and the struggle for women’s emancipation.
Ajay will be joined by Lucy Ribchester whose entertaining debut novel, The Hourglass Factory is set in 1912. London is in turmoil and the suffragette movement is reaching fever pitch, but for broke Fleet Street tomboy Frankie George, just getting by in the cut-throat world of newspapers is hard enough. Frankie is drawn into a world of tricks, society columnists, corset fetishists, suffragettes and circus freaks.
A fascinating insight into one of the most compelling stories in the history of the women’s suffrage movement.’ - THE TIMES (A Petrol Scented Spring)
