A wonderful day at the Shree Hindu Centre

February 3, 2019

What an inspirational day I spent last week-end in Birmingham, hosted by the local Hindu Community. They put on a whole day of presentations about inspirational women and their empowerment. About 200 people attended including many men; it was attended by the Mayors and other local dignitaries .

I was to speak on The Suffragettes’ Story so, although the organisers found me through my book writing website, I became a historian for the day and enjoyed it so much. The audience was so attentive and receptive; all the people were friendly and interested in everything and made a lovely lunch – which gave rise to chats about Jewish and Hindu dietary laws, so I wore my Interfaith hat for a while.

I even sold a few of my books, which I had not expected at all and will always remember the warmth of the welcome I received. I hope to put up some photos of the event soon.
