U3A — Not For King And Country
Fri 25th Oct 2019 Meeting

Speaker Kathy McNally
Talk about Edward VIII and the twice divorced Wallis Simpson. It has romance, intrigue and espionage. After eighty years the truth is emerging, piece by piece about the events that shook an empire.

For most of her professional life Kathy McNally was involved with research posts, books and authors. She studied at Strathclyde University for her first degree in Modern European History. While living in Scotland she acted as a Publishers' Reader for new authors of children's books and was a judge for the prestigious Carnegie and Greenaway awards on several occasions. Kathy was also as a freelance researcher and broadcaster for BBC Radio Scotland.
Currently she travels widely as a Guest Speaker including on P&O cruises giving talks about spying and espionage. When at home she indulges her passion for horse racing. One of her favourite race courses is, as might be expected, Taunton.

Monthly meetings of the U3A are held on the 4th Fri of the month at the Edgar Community Hall, Somerton.
10am for coffee (30p) and the chance for members to meet and chat.
The meeting will start at 10.30am and after announcements and any business will be followed by a guest speaker.
The meeting closes at 12 noon.
All are welcome.
Members free. Non-members £1.50.

Adventures behind the lens — hot rocks and high places.
