This event has started; we are no longer taking bookings.
Val Scully was a teacher on Tyneside: since she started volunteering at Gibside (National Trust) she has developed her interest in the history of the Gibside Estate and the wider Derwent Valley.
She has written two historical novels based on characters and events in the eighteenth and nineteenth century history of the area - My Name is Eleanor and Molly Bowes - and will talk about writing historical fiction with a didactic purpose.
