Julia Laite & Hallie Rubenhold | The Disappearance of Lydia Harvey 

Spring Festival 2022

In 1910 young, working-class sex worker Lydia Harvey ensured she would never be forgotten when she gave testimony at the trial of her traffickers. Join Julia Laite to explore the world of crime, sex and international policing as depicted in her highly acclaimed work The Disappearance of Lydia Harvey. Julia will be in conversation with fellow historian Hallie Rubenhold, author of the best-selling and 2019 Baillie Gifford Prize winning The Five – The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper, to explore lives unjustly overlooked by history. This engrossing true story of crime, travel and sexual exploitation is more relevant than ever in today’s post Me-Too world.
