Elizabeth Gaskell's House
Why are we drawn to Mary Barton and so many others? What sets these characters apart? Do they all break the rules and challenge convention? And what were the writers of these incredible characters trying to tell us? Libby Tempest, Chair of the Gaskell Society, reveals all.
The talk will be approx 45 mins long, with time for a short question session afterwards.
‘Thoroughly enjoyed it. Interesting, amusing, well-organised.’ Visitor to previous Libby Tempest event
