A fundraising talk on behalf of Frogmore Paper Mill, the world's first mechanised paper mill, which was devastated by fire.

Title of my talk: Researching my novel ‘The Paper Mill Girl’ 

Glenda Young has kindly offered to join our talks programme, with a presentation about writing her paper mill based story and how she researched it. The Apsley Paper Trail archive was one of her sources of information and if you have read the book, you will see we get a mention. Do come and meet Glenda, she is lovely! Copies of ‘The Paper Mill Girl’ will be available with all proceeds to our fundraiser for post- fire recovery.  Glenda will happily sign copies for you on the night.
