The Gaskell Society

Celebrating the life and work of Elizabeth Gaskell

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a reader in possession of a good book, must be in want of another…

So says Art Kilmer, Gaskell Society member and the man behind the Bookshelf Odyssey Podcast series. Art talks books, reads books and talks about books.  He reads and talks about the Gaskell short stories, ‘The Old Nurse’s Story’, ‘Hand and Heart’ and ‘The Grey Woman’.

Episode 4 features Gaskell Society committee member Dr Diane Duffy, talking about ‘The Grey Woman’ and ‘All Things Gaskell’.

All in all, pretty perfect for curling up and listening to on a dreary wet day (as it is here in the UK today).
