The Knutsford Meetings take place on the last Wednesday of the month from October to April, excluding December
This is the last meeting of this session and Elizabeth Williams will conclude our discussion of Wives and Daughter,, Elizabeth 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. We look forward to seeing you all at this meeting when we will consider which book we will discuss at the next session, beginning on Wednesday 26th October 2016
Prior to the discussion there will be the usual delicious buffet lunch served at 12.15 pm. The discussion will begin at about 2pm. and finish at 3pm. Doors open at 12 noon
