Knutsford Meeting at Brook Street Chapel

The Knutsford Meetings take place on the last Wednesday of the month from October to April, excluding December.

This session we are discussing Wives and DaughtersElizabeth Gaskell’s last novel, and arguably her best. She died before she had completed it, and the last few pages were written by Frederick Greenwood, editor of the Cornhill Magazine. This month we are fortunate to welcome Professor Angus Easson,  Emeritus Professor at Salford University and editor of Wives and Daughters, who will give us an insight into this , arguably Gaskell’s greatest novel. This will be followed by our usual discussion.

Prior to the discussion there will be a delicious buffet lunch served at 12.15 pm. The discussion will begin at about 2pm. and finish at 3pm. Doors open at 12.00am..
