RENOWNED TV news reporter and author Kate Adie will be in the Bay to promote her latest book, Fighting on the Home Front, later this month.
Kate (pictured) will be signing copies at the Torbay Bookshop, Paignton, on September 27 at 12.30pm.
In the book she tells the story of the First World War years through the eyes of women, and unearths in telling, fascinating and eye-watering detail just how hard was the uphill struggle for admission into the world of men. No longer was it possible to keep them at home, separated and segregated, without rights. They had proved what they could do.
Kate became the BBC's chief news correspondent in 1989, and has reported from war zones around the world. She has won numerous awards including three Royal Television Society awards, the Bafta Richard Dimbleby Award, and the Broadcasting Press Guild's award for Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting. She was awarded an OBE in 1993.
She presents From Our Own Correspondent on BBC Radio 4 and is the author of four bestselling books.
