Wednesday 28 November, 2018, 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm£10 – £11
The Grey Woman
“I always enjoy a Gaskell gothic novella and this one was no exception – thoroughly enjoyable, gripping and dramatic. I adore her writing style and her characterisation, and just how different everything she writes is.” The Grey Woman is another of Gaskell’s short stories which has elicited an enthusiastic response from a modern-day reader. Come along to the Gaskell Society meeting and join in the discussion led once more by Diane Duffy or just listen to what others have to say
