Tessa Dunlop: The Century Girls

Tessa DunlopTessa was making her second visit to St Peter’s and the York Literature Festival having visited a few years ago with her book ‘The Bletchley Girls’.

As ever, she brought energy and enthusiasm to her subject, introducing us to six ordinary but amazing women, all into their second century and who, through their lives, have experienced the huge social changes and the strides made in women’s rights.

Our Sunday afternoon audience was engaged and appreciative with lively discussion continuing over wine and canapés afterwards.
