Wednesday 24 November 2021, 2pm onwards. A chance to hear biographer and historian Helena Whitbread as she reveals her personal journey to decode the world-famous journals of Anne Lister.  Helena spent over 30 years painstakingly decoding Anne Lister's diaries. It was her tireless work, which began as a research project, that helped launch the Anne Lister story to the world. Anne Lister lived at Shibden Hall, just a few miles from Holdsworth House, in the 1800s. Described as a landowner, traveller, businesswoman and "the first modern lesbian", her diaries comprised over five-million words. At this event you'll hear the 'seven little words' that led Whitbread to eventually uncovering the secret Anne Lister harboured. In this Audience with Helena Whitbread event, interviewer Gail Moss (owner of Holdsworth House and daughter of one of Helena's late friends) chats with Helena and hosts a Q&A and Holdsworth House's traditional afternoon tea. Books by Helena will be available for purchase and signing. The event commences at 2pm with afternoon tea served at 3.30pm.
