Book shop owner and author Lorraine Smith joins us to reveal the fascinating results of her 18 months of research into this old world discovery.

In 2014 a customer in a Warrnambool second hand bookshop found a sixteenth century parchment from Yorkshire inside a copy of Alice in Wonderland.

Lorraine Smith studied Applied Science, specializing in chemistry, at university and qualified as a mathematics and science teacher. After a career in teaching and raising a family of four children with her husband Neil, her love of books led her to where she is today – operating a second hand bookshop in Warrnambool. This book is her third foray in writing non-fiction, having written her family history in 2013 and co-written ‘Warrnambool, a Photographic View’ with Neil in 2015.
