Words of War Book Festival | Mary Miller in conversation with Ajay Close

The Black Watch Castle and Museum, Perth
22nd September | 3.00pm-4.00pm
Scottish WW2 heroine

In 2010, the British Government named Jane Haining, a farmer’s daughter from Galloway as a ‘British Hero of the Holocaust’ for her efforts to protect Jewish schoolchildren in Hungary during WW2. Inspired by her own work with children in arduous circumstances, Mary Miller has produced a powerful and tender account of this Scottish heroine, her devotion to pupils in her care and her death in Auschwitz. Mary’s book A Life of Love and Courage describes the days of sunshine and days of darkness.

Mary is in conversation with novelist Ajay Close author of A Petrol Scented Spring, based on a group of Scottish suffragettes imprisoned in Perth.

Tickets £8
