The Watermill book Club is especially pleased to host Sheila Hancock talking with Ian Willox about her first novel Miss Carter's War and other aspects of her public life as an actress and campaigner.
Miss Carter’s War is a powerful, panoramic portrait of post-war Britain and a remarkable chronicle of our life and times. Miss Carter has a mission – to fight social injustice, to prevent war and to educate her girls. From the first Aldermaston march in the 1950s, through the rise of the Labour Party and the Swinging Sixties to the AIDS epidemic of the 80s and the spectre of a new war, Sheila Hancock has created a powerful, panoramic portrait of post-war Britain.
Sheila’s books have sold more than a million copies worldwide. Her memoir of her late husband John Thaw, The Two of Us was a number one bestseller and won the British Book Award for Author of the Year.
