KateWilliams-680x450Kate Williams

I’ve always admired historian Kate Williams (not only for her brilliant fashion sense) and feel she would make the perfect honorary Old Fashioned Girl. Famed for her brilliantly researched and written biographies of historic women, I was excited to discover she has released a new book delving into the life of Napoleon’s wife Josephine. If you fancy a trip to Oxford (and who would say no to that?), Williams is giving a talk on her latest work as part of the Oxford Literary Festival on Saturday, 29th March. I just booked my tickets and can’t wait to go!¬†– Miranda
