From learning to live with the loss of loved ones to finding new roles in society and working life, WW1 impacted women’s lives profoundly.

Story Café: Picking Up The Pieces, Thursday 13th June, 1pm to 3pm, Edinburgh Central Library, 16+, Women only

In its aftermath, many women writers bore witness to the struggles and triumphs of those women. Rediscover the joy of being read to as we hear from some of the most compelling voices of the time. Relax, listen and enjoy some tea and cake!
