Elizabeth Gaskell’s Birthday Talk: Elizabeth Gaskell and Gossip

29 September, 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

We’re celebrating Elizabeth Gaskell’s birthday with a glass of wine and a good gossip!

The Gaskell Society’s Elizabeth Williams will discuss Elizabeth Gaskell’s sharp eye and sharper tongue in this fascinating talk on Gaskell and gossip. Is gossip just malicious tittle-tattle, or could it be a compelling kind of story-telling? Find out more, as we delve into Elizabeth Gaskell’s writings to decide just what her gossip entails!

Please join us for a complimentary glass of wine prior to the talk as we raise a birthday toast to Elizabeth Gaskell, the original gossip girl and Victorian queen of banter!
