Q Conversations 2: the living legend that is Frances Whitehead

by quaesitor

You may not have heard of Frances Whitehead – but if you have read any of John Stott’s books, you will have witnessed her extraordinary handiwork: transforming his handwritten scrawl into immaculate typescript ready for the publishers. For more than 50 years, she worked very closely with him and her perspective on his life and work is unique and valuable.

So it was a total joy for me to spend the best part of a day with her at home in Bourne End, on the Thames, to the west of London, during which our conversation ranged over all kinds of things. What I hadn’t realised was the special significance that day in particular (9th April) held for her, as you will hear. She talks with great humour and frankness about her life and work. Enjoy!

The podcast is divided in two, on predictably convenient grounds!

  • Part 1: Life before All Souls
  • Part 2: Life after All Souls

Subscribe to the Q conversations podcast on iTunes here or if you don’t have that, you can get hold of through a direct feed on Jellycast here. It may take a day or two for these to show up in an iTunes search.
