Event description
We are very pleased to announce Hester Grant as guest speaker in our series of online talks.

About this Event

Hester will be talking about her vivid biography of the Sharp siblings. Her book records the enthralling story of an eighteenth-century family from Northumberland and their extraordinary achievements. Ambitious, free-thinking and courageous, the Sharps were pioneers in the major movements that defined the eighteenth century - from political reform and philanthropy to medicine and industry. "The Good Sharps" brings to life not just these men and women who realised that the future could be different, but also the new world they created.
