M.L.F. Nick Channer: “Writers’ Houses”

Monday 19 October, 2015, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Writers’ Houses :  A talk by author Nick Channer at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House

Manchester Literature Festival in association with Elizabeth Gaskell’s House    

Readers have always been fascinated by their favourite authors’ daily routines – proof that they are people like us, with lives of their own off the page. In his insightful new book, Writers’ Houses, Nick Channer takes us inside homes with strong literary connections, exploring the links between place and the act of creation. Fittingly, he comes to Elizabeth Gaskell’s House to discuss residences associated with the author of North and South and Mary Barton.

From the homes of friends and contemporaries Charles Dickens, Thomas Carlyle, Henry James and George Eliot, to the Brontë Parsonage at Haworth and other notable writers’ houses in the North. Get beyond the bricks and mortar and into the inner sanctums of these literary legends.

Doors open 6pm.

Tickets £6 Concessions £4
