Author Sally Bayley discusses her literary memoir, Girl with Dove: A Life Built by Books – the story of a young girl escaping from an all-female household by reading. In this interactive session, Sally discusses the relationship between childhood reading and verbal memory and the associations of particular words she encountered in reading Jane Eyre, Miss Marple and David Copperfield and draws you into a world of imaginative etymology and word plots.
