Carolyn Trant presents her new book in conversation with author Michèle Roberts

Artist Carolyn Trant takes us on a journey through a fascinating period of social change, filling in some of the gaps in traditional art histories. Introducing the lives and works of a rich network of neglected women artists, Voyaging Out: British Women Artists from Suffrage to the Sixties sets these alongside such renowned presences as Barbara Hepworth, Laura Knight and Winifred Nicholson.
