ICARUS REBORN MW
A romp through the centuries of man’s attempts to emulate the flight of birds. This is an animated, illustrated talk by Roy Smart, culminating in the tragic death of pioneer aviator, Percy Pilcher. Had it not been for this accident, he may well have flown before the Wright Brothers.
FRIDAY 2ND AUGUST
WOMEN OF COVENTRY GT
Using research and illustrations from her new book, A History of Women’s Lives in Coventry, Dr Cathy Hunt’s talk is about the often neglected details of women’s daily lives, of their triumphs and tragedies, changes and continuities, loves and losses. She examines what it was like for women to grow up in Coventry between 1850 and 1950, to go to the city’s schools, to work in its offices, shops and factories. She explores women’s experiences of getting married, setting up home and raising children, how women spent their scarce and precious leisure time and what they sought to do in order to improve life for all.
