Elizabeth Gaskell House
Book Launch with Hannah K. Chapman and Lauren Burke
Dive into the fascinating, unexpected, and inspiring stories behind the greatest women writers in the English language as the amazing Bonnets at Dawn launch their new book. The engaging duo talk about their Elizabeth Gaskell chapter and consider her work, along with other women writers including Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, Alice Dunbar Nelson and Anne Lister, to ask a simple question: in a time when being a woman writer often meant being undervalued, overlooked, or pigeonholed, why did she write?
For aspiring writers, literary enthusiasts, and the classics fan who has everything, this event highlights Gaskell’s influence and the spark that called her to write. (To purchase book please visit https://www.abramsandchronicle.co.uk/book/9781797202099-why-she-wrote/ )
