For word lovers and adventurists – what does a feminist historical fiction novel about pirates, smuggling and revenge have in common with a 'people's history' of the Oxford English Dictionary? Come and find out at this exciting conversation between author Kim Sherwood and lexicographer Sarah Ogilvie, who will be exploring the question of who gets to write history via explorers, suffragists, murderers, Dr Johnson, ordinary citizens... and more.
Kim Sherwood is author of Testament and Double or Nothing. She lectures at University of Edinburgh. Sarah Ogilvie is a linguist, lexicographer, writer and technologist who has written widely on dictionaries and teaches at Oxford University.
