One thought on “Events

  1. Hi Geraldine, I am the Lady captain at Wanstead Golf Club and our club house is actually in the Stables of the old Wanstead House. I understand things are pretty hectic for you at the moment, but I was wondering if you could come to our Golf Club and give a talk on your findings and hopefully sell a few books. I produce a newsletter for the Ladies section, in which I have been serealising (sic) a potted history of Catherine and the scoundrel William over the last few months and would very much like to publicise your new book….The Angel and the cad. I have tried to tweet you, but I am not very tweet savvy. Please could you email me on: as I would be fascinated to hear you talk and hopefully come along to our club as there are many members who are fascinated by Wanstead House and its history.. it would be so great if this could happen. With kind regards, Mary Mcportland (Wanstead Golf Club.
