Northern Writers Reading: Jo Stanley
January 15 @ 19:30 - 20:30
Author Events in Marsden Library
Making a welcome return after a successful reading in October 2016 when she read from her Mountbatten Prize nominated ‘From Cabin ‘Boys’ to Captains’.
Jo’s latest book (out November 2017) is Women and the Royal Navy, IB Tauris/ NMRN). It’s unusual because for the first time this history covers all categories of women who’ve been in naval life, including female doctors, dentists, wartime VADs and above all the modern women sailors who are now moving towards becoming admirals.
Jo lives in Mount Road, Marsden and is an active volunteer with the Jazz Festival and the plant group at the National Trust. On the rare occasions when she’s not writing she’s creating stitched historical works, especially as a member of the Fabric of Protest group at Manchester People’s History Museum. Her website is at www.jostanley.biz.
