Online talk by author and tv producer, Jo Willett at The Harley Gallery

As author of the newly released The Pioneering Life of Mary Wortley Montagu, Jo will talk about the extraordinary Lady Mary and her friendship with Welbeck Abbey’s Lady Henrietta Cavendish Holles Harley. The two grew up just 10 miles apart and were to become lifelong friends. Lady Henrietta became Countess of Oxford and Mortimer and, unusual for females of that time, inherited Welbeck Abbey, playing an important part in its history. Lady Mary, meanwhile, grew up at Thoresby Hall, before making her name as a science campaigner.

Speaker, Jo Willett, is an award-winning TV drama and comedy producer. Her projects include Manhunt, which starred Martin Clunes, and the comedy series Birds of a Feather, as well as Bertie and Elizabeth (the story of the Queen Mother’s marriage), among many. Alongside her TV work, Jo has begun to write historical autobiographies. The Pioneering Life of Mary Wortley Montagu is her first book and is published this month, and she is currently at work on her second. Jo’s online talk – Lady Mary and Lady Henrietta. A lifelong friendship - will take place at midday on 18 June.

Anyone wishing to book a space on the talk should email info@harleygallery.co.uk. More details can be found on the Harley Gallery website.
