A Land at Chipping Campden Lit Fest

Dr Christine Finn will discuss Jacquetta’s life and ideas on Friday 3 May 2013 at the Chipping Campden Literature Festival.  Jacquetta had a particular connection with this part of Gloucestershire.  She lived in Chipping Campden for the latter part of her life, moving to a house called Littlecote after the death in 1984 of her husband J.B. Priestley.  This was, as her friend Diana Collins observed, a wise move, taking her away from the home she had shared with JB but not too far from her local friends and interests.
