Rediscovering Marguerite Jervis – the Queen of Romance

May 24, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

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
