The public school system of the 60s and 70s has been much in the news of late. In his poignant memoir, Charles Lord Spencer recounts the trauma of being sent away from home at age eight to attend a boarding school, with a clear-eyed, firsthand account of what was a culture of cruelty. He’ll be providing important insights into an antiquated boarding system, drawing on the memories of many of his schoolboy contemporaries, as well as his own letters and diaries from the time, reflecting candidly on the long-lasting impact of the experience on him and others.
