Knutsford Meeting – March 2022

Tuesday 29 March, 2022, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm BST

£5 – £6

The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne joins Elizabeth Gaskell’s Ruth in the line-up in our March and April meetings, as Dr Diane Duffy begins a discussion exploring the two works side-by-side.  Diane will be looking at the situation and presentations of the two protagonists, Hester Prynne and Ruth, along with the presentation of children.

In March, we’ll be discussing Hester, with a likely focus on chapters 1-5 and 13.

Our monthly meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month, between October and April (except December). Bring your own packed lunch from 1pm and then enjoy a friendly and informal talk and discussion, led by Dr Diane Duffy, 2-3pm.

Read Diane’s Points to Ponder

Everyone is most welcome.

£5 members, £6 non-members
