Ann Lingard (novelist, scientist and former Visiting Research Fellow at the ESRC Genomics Forum), Andrew Connell (Collections Manager at the Surgeons' Hall Museum) and Diana Hendry (poet and Costa-shortlisted children's novelist) will tell some of these stories, fact and part-fiction, with readings from their works, illustrations, and thoughts about the present-day relevance of the exhibits.
