Book Launch | Dear Mona: Letters from a Conscientious Objector
Join us for the launch of Dear Mona: Letters from a Conscientious Objector, which contains the letters exchanged between Jonah Jones and Mona Lovell.
The book not only tells the story of Jonah and Mona’s intense relationship, but also reveals Jonah’s experience of the Second World War and the evolution of his character, from gauche Len Jones to artist Jonah Jones. It is a remarkable, immediate account – intensely personal, yet also a record of history: the Home Front, pacifism, D-Day and Belsen, and the tensions in Palestine, which resonate still today.
Jonah’s son and the editor of the book, Peter Jones, will provide insight and anecdotes from the private letters, followed by a Q&A session. Refreshments will be provided. There is free parking available at the venue.
This is a free event, but spaces are limited. Please RSVP to confirm your place:
