A talk by the author Sheila Woolf called ‘A Strange Time’

Join us for an insight into the life of Cordelia Leigh, youngest daughter of Lord Leigh of Stoneleigh Abbey who devoted her life to education and became an inspiration to the many young people whose lives she touched. Perhaps her greatest legacy is the work she did during the Great War, work revealed through her meticulously kept scrapbooks and diaries. In November 2012 these, entitled A Strange Time, were published for the first time by the speaker and co-author Chris Holland.
