by Elizabeth Clark
Annette Elizabeth Clark was born in 1875, the eldest daughter of a vicar. With pioneering courage she left home for London, determined to make her gift for storytelling her life’s work. She narrated her stories to great acclaim at events and gatherings of children, and became a very successful, much published author. She was also sought after as a lecturer on the art of storytelling. In her lifetime she wrote over a hundred stories and broadcast on the BBC’s affectionately remembered ‘Children’s Hour’ in the 1920s.
