biblio-fiend.com is proud to announce the launch of our new video series, Interview with the Author. In this series of videos, we sit down with individual authors of books that have appeared in our curated book recommendations, either on our Current Events or On This Day pages, to delve deeper into their published work, and to discuss related issues from a broader perspective.
In the second episode of our series, we’re joined by Catharine Arnold, a former journalist and local politician in Nottingham, UK, whose latest book, Pandemic 1918, was featured in our (newly updated!) article The 8 Best Books on Pandemics. Catharine’s book focuses on how the Spanish Flu of 1918 was experienced by people from all walks of life, from the doctors and nurses on the frontline, to writers, soldiers, and politicians. Based on countless hours of pain-staking research in historical archives and personal diaries from the period, Pandemic 1918 delivers a wide-ranging, detailed window on how the pandemic was lived by our forebears.
