Outsiders: Five Women Writers Who Changed the World. A lecture by Lyndall Gordon


Saturday, 21 April 2018 at 2.00pm

This is the third event to honour the memory of Kathleen and Bill Adams.

Kathleen and Bill guided and ran the Fellowship for 40 years. They both died in 2016.

Lyndall Gordon's latest book deals with the lives of George Eliot, Mary Shelley, Emily Bronte, Olive Schreiner and Virginia Woolf. She has a reputation for excellent literary biographies, starting with T S Eliot in 1977 and subsequently including Virginia Woolf, Henry James, Mary Wollstonecraft, Emily Dickinson and others.

Her latest book stirs us and fascinates us with its insights into the lives of her subjects and visitors to this lecture will be keen to read the rest of her book, copies of which will be available on the day.

The event will be at Chilvers Coton Heritage Centre, Avenue Road, Nuneaton CV11 4LU. There is free parking on site.
