Here at Candy Jar Books we're delighted to announce that Eileen Younghusband, hero of the Second World War, adult education campaigner and downright national treasure, will be appearing at this year's Hay Festival on 26th May 2015. Now into her ninth decade, Eileen, author of One Woman's War and Men I Have Known, both published by Candy Jar Books, is a natural raconteur, as evinced by her upcoming appearance in the BBC's Britain's Greatest Generation. Expect tales of her time in the Filter Room, the radar hub which orchestrated the RAF's heroic campaigns, from the Battle of Britain to the Dambuster raids, throughout World War Two.
