Philip Stevens will talk about the extraordinary women who served and gave their lives in the Great War including Edith Cavell, Evelina Haverfield and Katherine Harley. He will also discuss the many women who left domestic labour to join the war effort and the voluntary hospital movement. In partnership with Shropshire Council Shrewsbury Bookfest has presented a series of events commemorating the First World War each November since 2014. These events have been designed for children, young people and families to commemorate and remember all those who fought in the First World War. In keeping with Bookfest’s ethos of enthusing children and young people with a love of reading, all the events in the programme have had a strong literary connection.
