Description

Tim Battle, Librarian of Richmond Literary Lunches, writes:

Sarah Helm, Vera Atkins, A Life in Secrets, is the definitive account of an absorbing double mystery: the fate of the missing female SOE agents in WW2 and the truth behind the woman who searched for them. The Sunday Times writes “Carefully researched and engaging biography”. The Daily Mail “….makes for compulsive reading”.

Sonia Purnell, A Woman of No Importance, has written one of the most breath-taking stories yet told of femalecourage behind enemy lines.The strength of this book lies not only in Purnell’s intimate portrait of Virginia’s secret work, but of the bungling, betrayal, in Churchill’s Special Operations Executive for which Virginia worked.

There will be a showing of the film Charlotte Gray, a drama set in Nazi-occupied France at the height of WW2. The Secret WW2 Learning Network provides a historical backdrop to the work of the SOE.

Richmond Literary Lunches start at 1:00pm with a glass of wine on arrival, a delicious 2 course lunch shortly followed by the film - all for just £38:50. Early Bird discount before September 3rd £35. Book for 5 get one free.
