Rosemary Griggs. Exeter Forum Talk:A Woman of Noble Wit, Katherine Champernowne – The Birth of a Novel • The Mint Church Wednesday 3 November

Free for members. Visitors £3

10.45 (Doors open 10.15)

In this talk, Rosemary will explain how her interest in Devon’s sixteenth century history and in historical clothing led to research into the life of a fascinating Devon woman, and ultimately to her novel A Woman of Noble Wit.


Rosemary Griggs writes historical novels based on the sixteenth century, inspired by women who have to balance duty and love in turbulent times. She makes her own historical clothing which she wears for her talks. Rosemary has discovered many fascinating stories in her research and as a volunteer with the National Trust and she makes regular appearances as a history interpreter.


Visitors will be welcome to join the regular members of the Exeter Forum at this talk, at a cost of £3.00 per person, payable on the day.
