Anne Sebba with Helen Fry on her book “Jennie Churchill”
In 1874 Brooklyn born Jennie Jerome moved into the British aristocracy to become Lady Randolph Churchill. At a time when women had few freedoms, she became a cornerstone of high society and a political behind-the-scenes dynamo.
With unprecedented access to private correspondence, Anne will tell the stories of Jennie – a woman known for her sexual freedoms and love life.
Was she a good or bad mother? Sexually open or a predator? Self-centred or ahead of her time?
Come hear about a woman – so well known who was creative and passionate and lived life to the full.
