Rediscovering Marguerite Jervis – the Queen of Romance

The Medical Society of London, 11 Chandos Street, London, W1G 9EB, United Kingdom

The lecture will also be shown live online.

One of the best-selling novelists of her time, Marguerite Jervis (1886-1964) lies in an unmarked grave near her beloved adopted hometown of Aberystwyth. Author, journalist, actor, theatre, she worked with Hitchcock and other greats. So why is she forgotten today?

Speaker: Dr Liz Jones
University of Aberystwyth

Professor Prys Morgan, President of the Society in the chair
