Historic Heroines: Coding and Crime with Lucy Ribchester and Kaite Welsh.
When? Saturday 22nd July, 11am-12pm
Who? Lucy Ribchester, Kaite Welsh
Honey Deschamps spends her days at a type-x machine in Hut 6 of Bletchley Park, transcribing signals from the German Army. Sarah Gilchrist has fled from London to Edinburgh in disgrace and is determined to become a doctor, despite the misgivings of her family and society in the Victorian era. The authors of these historic heroines join us to chat about bringing them, and the past, to life in The Amber Shadows and The Wages of Sin.
