Story Café Special: Donna Moore, Thursday 10th May, 12.30pm to 2.30pm, £2/Free, 16+
Donna Moore is back to enthrall us with her linked historical novellas, exploring the treatment of women in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The Smuggler’s Bride tells the story of a young woman who is committed to Stirling District Asylum during the 1870s by her controlling husband. Donna will be revealing the stories behind some of the real women in the Asylum, and giving us a fascinating glimpse into her ongoing research.
The last time Donna hosted a Story Café Special one of the attendees told us, “One of the best afternoons I’ve ever had at GWL”.
