Girls' School Stories

The front panel image on this year's Elora Writers' Festival brochure is a modified version of the cover illustration (by Balliol Salmon) of Angela Brazil's novel, The Madcap of the School (1917).

Angela Brazil was born in Preston, Lancashire, U.K. in 1869. Between 1905 and her death in 1947 this pioneer of young adult fiction wrote more than fifty so-called "girls' school stories."
