Dorset - "Ransome in Russia” - A Talk by Ted Alexander
Alumni and guests are invited to join the Cambridge Society of Dorset for a historical talk about Arthur Ransome’s extraordinary time in Russia and the Baltic.
He will also bring some rare archive material for us to see. This important aspect of Ransome’s life is well worth appreciating and occurred long before this wonderful writer gave us the children’s classics about the Swallows and Amazons.
Lunch will follow the talk, please see the booking form below to see the menu choices.
