Florence Nightingale biographer to speak

  1. Greetings:
    Here is information about a talk by Florence Nightingale's biographer, at a Chicago bookstore on July 10.
    Wednesday, July 10
    7:30 PM
    Dr. Val Webb author of FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE: THE MAKING OF A RADICAL THEOLOGIAN, will discuss the fascinating life and little-known achievements of Florence Nightingale, looking beyond the "Lady with the Lamp" image to reveal a reformer, feminist, activist-and theologian.

    Best regards,
    Kelly Hughes

    I moved this to the General Discussions Forum; It will probably get more coverage here.

    As someone interested in history, it sounds like it would be interesting but I have to work that night and don't live in Chicago.

    I will check out the book, though, as I know Flo was not the gentle kind "Lady with the Lamp" so many people imagine her to be.
