Rodney Dingle will give a talk on the Dreyfus Affair, a political scandal that rocked France in the 1890s;

Rodney calls his talk A Tale for Our Time, and explains why the sensational events of those years matter to us even now. When the young artillery officer Alfred Dreyfus was convicted of treason, the great French novelist Emile Zola launched a campaign to clear his name, with a powerful article headed “J’Accuse!”

Proceeds will go to the Village Hall Appeal.
