Event description

Description

Jane Austen wrote in the 1800s, PL Travers wrote in the 1900s, and Helen Fielding wrote in the 2000's. Each writer experienced their different yet similar challenges facing women (and writers) today. This talk looks at a key heroine of each writer and offers a comparative discussion. Amber the American Tour Guide has researched Emma, Mary Poppins and Bridget Jones for her walks, and has found the similarities to be fascinating! Join this evening's talk in celebration of World Book Day and International Women's Day.

Amber Raney-Kincade splits her time between tour guiding and working as a marketing consultant. She is a qualified guide in the City of London, Westminster and Camden. She holds an MBA in International Marketing and teaches social media courses at CityLit. A native Texan, she has called London home for 16 years and loves discovering new and interesting history for her dynamic walking tours. Often dressed in character, her goal is to bring history to life through education, engagement and entertainment!
