A Conversation with Madame Jacqueline Munro-Lafon

Venue: Glasgow
Visit website

Event Date: 04/11/2019 17:00 - 19:00

Jacqueline Munro-Lafon was born in Paris in 1921, to a liberal family of lawyers and wine merchants. She went on to study Journalism and during her years as a student she became politically active, with a particular interest in demonstrating for the rights of workers and of women. 

At the age of ninety-eight, Jacqueline remains a prominent figure in the Franco-Scottish Society, and continues to cultivate a passionate interest in the arts, in left-wing politics and in current affairs.

The event will be hosted by speakers of French and English in a relaxed conversation format, enabling Jacqueline to share her experience and memories spanning eight generations of her family and audience members to ask questions – in both languages!

The event is relevant to individuals with a keen interest in French and History. Advanced Higher pupils and students who study these subjects are particularly welcome.

Visit the website for more information and to secure your place. The event is free to attend, but registration is required.
