Women Behind Enemy Lines: literary lunch with Sonia Purnell & Sarah Helm
September 30, 2019
The Charity was proud to be associated with the Richmond Literary Lunch, the Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club on Tuesday, 24th September 2019.
This was a top-quality occasion with two acclaimed SOE writers. Sonia Purnell's biography of the American SOE/OSS agent Virginia Hall was published earlier this year, while Sarah Helm's acclaimed Vera Atkins biography has long been a 'must read' for anyone with an interest in SOE's French Section.
The lunch, talks and discussion session were followed by a screening of Charlotte Gray, the feature film based on Sebastian Faulks' WW2 novel of the same name about a fictional female SOE agent operating in occupied France.
