Queen Victoria's Mysterious Daughter: booktalk by Lucinda Hawksley

Sat, April 30, 2016 2:00 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

The secrets of Queen Victoria's sixth child, Princess Louise, may have been destined to remain hidden forever. What was so dangerous about this artistic, tempestuous royal that her life has been documented more by rumor and gossip than hard facts?  When writer, lecturer and Charles Dickens' great great great granddaughter Lucinda Hawksley started to investigate, often thwarted by inexplicable secrecy from sources like the Royal Archives, she discovered a fascinating woman, modern before her time, whose story has been shielded for years from public view.
