Jay Rayner will amuse and challenge his audience with his tales of growing up, and his views on how we eat in a supermarket dominated world where many people are short of food and others think going organic is a solution. He will debunk some sacred cows of the food world and may change the way you eat, shop and cook.



A Remarkable Suffragette

Historian Angela John will talk about Lady Rhondda, the subject of her latest book at Dartmouth Library on Wednesday 16 October 6.30-8pm.

Turning the Tide tells the remarkable tale of Margaret Haig Thomas who became the Second Viscountess Rhondda. She was a Welsh suffragette, held important posts during the First World War and survived the sinking of the Lusitania. A leading British industrialist, she was also instrumental in securing a seat for women in the House of Lords. Closely associated with figures such as Winifred Holtby, Vera Brittain and George Bernard Shaw, she founded and edited the progressive weekly paper Time and Tide. Drawing upon a rich array of sources, many previously unused, Angela V. John explores both the public achievements and the fascinating private world of one of the movers and shakers of British society in the first half of the twentieth century.

Angela V. John is a widely published historian and biographer. For many years she held the chair in History at the University of Greenwich, London. She is now an Honorary Professor at Aberystwyth University. She is a vice-president of Llafur, the Welsh People's History Society. This is her tenth book, published by Parthian.
