AJ HIGGINSON MEETS WRITER AND CULTURAL CAMPAIGNER, STELLA DUFFY OBE

STELLA DUFFY

A highly acclaimed novelist and theatre-maker, Stella Duffy has twice won a prestigious Crime Writers’ Association Dagger for her short stories. She has also won Stonewall Writer of the Year twice. A driving force behind the Women’s Equality Party since its inception and co-director of the Fun Palaces campaign for greater access to culture for all, she was awarded an OBE for services to the arts in 2016.

Stella’s latest book, London Lies Beneath, is inspired by a real but mostly forgotten disaster, which befell a scouting trip sailing from Waterloo to the Isle of Sheppey, near the mouth of the Thames, in August 1912. Set in the south London slums of the 1900s, this is the story of three friends, and a tragedy that will change them forever.
