Martha Gellhorn and Helen Kirkpatrick were among the more famous female reporters who covered World War II, but there were many, British, French and American, who, against all odds, got their stories to the waiting public.
Gellhorn managed to sneak aboard a ship, and then actually made it to the beaches of Normandy for her story. That is more than could be said for the very macho Ernest Hemingway. The stories of these brave, audacious female writers and photographers have inspired and informed Meg Waite Clayton's newest novel The Race For Paris.
She will be with us "in conversation" with our own intrepid journalist Donna Apidone on Tuesday, September 13 at 6 pm. Don't miss this one. It will be fascinating and inspiring.
See you there!
