Arthur Ransome: story-teller, journalist, sailor, fisherman and suspected spy
12 January 2018 5:30pm — 8:00pm
Cheryl Paget, Co-ordinator of The Arthur Ransome Society of New Zealand will speak about the man, his children’s novels and the rumour that he acted as a British Spy during the Russian Revolution.
There was much more to Arthur Ransome than his Swallows and Amazons novels alone. He wrote more than twenty-five other books, on a wide range of subjects, many related to his own life, experience and interests which were wide ranging, exciting and deeply fascinating.
