Celebrating Sfk Women by Sarah Doig
At our July meeting, Sarah Doig will present a talk called “Celebrating Suffolk women”, which is a pot-pourri of stories about the county’s famous and not so well-known women. Suffolk artists, suffragettes, medical pioneers and writers all feature in this look at the fascinating lives of the county’s heroines.
After having travelled the world during her 20-year career in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Sarah could no longer resist the strong pull back to East Anglia to which she returned in 2010. She is an independent historical researcher and author, and also a popular speaker on local and general history. As well as having written for a number of local magazines, Sarah has had several books published by The History Press and Amberley Publishing. These include “The A-Z of Curious Suffolk”, “The Little History of Suffolk” and “A-Z of Ipswich: Places, People, History”. Sarah is the current chair of the Friends of Suffolk Archives.
