Sasha will be talking about his book about the fascinating life of Lottie Dod, the World’s First Female Sports Superstar. She was a British sporting polymath who dominated women’s sports from the 1880s to the early 1900s: a champion tennis player, golfer, archer, hockey player, mountaineer, ice skater, tobogganist and bicyclist.
Sasha will be interviewed by Helen Wright
