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.
Full details of the programme, location, tickets etc. on the Festival website. The Festival looks to be a fascinating mix of literary discussion, practical skills and fun for children. Authors celebrated in the programme include Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Proust, Ford Madox Ford and Nancy Mitford.
