Linora Lawrence

Linora Lawrence sadly died on 2nd January 2020. For many years she was a highly valued member, and Chair, of the Oxford Writers Group. Linora wrote for The Lady, The Oxford Times and, for over twenty years wrote features for its monthly magazine, Oxfordshire Limited Edition and, most notably, a bi-monthly series of articles entitled An A – Z of the Bodleian Library which ran for a year between March 2014 and 2015. Linora also contributed stories to each of our five successful collections of Oxford Stories. She lived in Oxford for over thirty years during which time she worked at St Hilda’s and Trinity colleges, the Bodleian Library and Oxford University Press. Linora also worked for Williams Formula 1 where she experienced a totally different, but fascinating, other world. She realised that many of the people she met in Oxford over the years unknowingly contributed to the tales she told, for which she thanked them wholeheartedly. Linora is greatly missed by us all.
