Saturday 1:45 pm Humanities R52 From Jamaica to the Crimea – A Research Journey
Jay Margrave will talk about how she conducts her research for her novels, the last one being, Can her glory ever fade: a life of Mary Seacole. For this novel, Jay travelled to Jamaica to find out more about her character's early life and had also travelled to the Crimea to see the place where Mary Seacole was involved in the Crimean War; but, worry not, she also carries out research from her desk and will describe how other writers can do likewise.
Open to all, just turn up.
