This essay by Kay Farndon is a lovely example of the sort of material that we want to collect for the George Eliot Visitor Centre. There are many people locally who have stories to tell about how George Eliot has affected their lives, or those of their parents, grandparents or distant relatives. They all contribute to the rich local associations that still exist in the area.
We are very grateful to Gerry Bishop and his group of amateur film makers in Nuneaton for this item. The film shows an exhibition held in Nuneaton Library and Museum in 1990. The film shows the quality of video before the digital age. Gerry would like to repeat the exhibition but retain the commentary. It remains to be seen whether that might be possible.

There is still chance to buy this delightful edition as a present. We know that youngsters love it and the generosity of the Nicholas Chamberlaine Trust in Bedworth enabled the Fellowship to give a copy to every primary school pupil in the Bedworth area
But since then we have discovered that many adults also love this edition. The story is a delight of course and the illustrations are beautiful, as the examples here show.
