What was it like to live through one of the most deadly epidemics in recent memory? Join the Royal College of Nursing Library and Archives for an evening of letters written by ordinary people who nursed the “Spanish” flu (1918-20).

The event is curated and introduced by historian Hannah Mawdsley, who is researching the social and cultural impact of the flu epidemic.
