I will back next month to listen to more great speakers at the June meeting. Again, anyone who would like to attend is more than welcome. Lady Carnarvon will be giving a talk about Highclere Castle (known to many as the fictional house in Downton Abbey) and Lindsay Ashford and Steven Lawrence from Chawton House (Jane Austin) will be hosting the event. Lindsay is a crime novelist and will be adjudicating the competition which is to write the first page of a historical novel, so please get writing.
