The Ladies who were famous

Reader Liz alerted me to an online article, “The Ladies Who Were Famous For Wanting To Be Left Alone,” by Patricia Hampl. It appears on the site LONGREADS.

Hampl’s book The Art of the Wasted Day, newly published in April 2018, certainly speaks to my type of personality – for no day alone is a WASTED day! The Ladies of Llangollen’s history opens the book. One reviewer calls The Art of the Wasted Day “a swirl of memoir, travelogue and biography”. Click on the cover to read more about Hampl’s book.

Of course, I invited all readers to let me know of Ladies of Llangollen-related tidbits you’ve seen or produced. Would love to let all readers know what is out there – whether stores, articles, new books (or old), photos, trips, etc. etc.
