Angels of the North: Notable Women of the North East

To mark the centenary of the year that (some) women  in Britain were allowed the vote, Warkworth authors Baroness Joyce Quinn  and Moira Kilkenny will be exploring the remarkable lives of some of the women of the North East at Amble Library on Friday 7 December, 7.00 -8.30 p.m.


Taken from their book Angels of the North: Notable Women of the North East, Joyce and Moira will focus on some of the women who fought for women’s right and suffrage before switching attention to the First World War and the varied roles of women in this conflict.


Find out how Joyce and Moira came together to write this book that highlights forty women from many fields- the arts, politics, science, women’s rights, business and sheer heroism - and how they selected their final women for inclusion.


Signed copies of ‘ Angels of the North’ will be available to purchase on the night.


Tea/Coffee & mince pies will be included in the £4 ticket price.


Tickets are available in advance from Northumberland Libraries Events | Eventbrite
