The Novel by Leslie Forbes

A tale of creativity, betrayal and obsessive love is woven around the true story of William and Jane Morris's eldest daughter Jenny. Narrated through diaries written by the women and the enigmatic Dr. Q, Embroidered Minds spans half a century, focussing on political and artisitic directions in which the celebrated Morrisses were led because of jenny's epilepsy, a condition that reflected their dynamic era.

Leslie Forbes, author and a key coordinator of this project died in July 2016 following a major epileptic seizure. The collaborative project will continue as Leslie had intended. Please see our Blog for further information.
