    SIGNED Memoir of Dame Stephanie Shirley £10.00 (p&p included)

    We have signed copies of this incredible autobiography by Dame Stephanie Shirley, founder of Autism at Kingwood. It tells the story of a five-year-old German girl whose parents sent her away to escape the Nazis, on one of the last Kindertransport trains out of Europe; of a young refugee who found love and acceptance with an English foster family, and who vowed that she would repay them by living “a life worth saving”; of a brilliant young woman whose pioneering computer skills were rebuffed, in the 1950s and 1960s, by sexism in the workplace; of a brave entrepreneur who defied convention by setting up her own company and defied it further by employing women working from home, and giving them the unheard of freedom to choose their own hours and manage their own workloads; of a woman who spent her wealth setting up Autism at Kingwood for her autistic son.
