Letters and Elizabeth Gaskell

Saturday 4 February, 2023, 12:45 pm - 4:00 pm GMT

Carolyn Lambert is the Gaskell Society’s Letters Recorder, responsible for hunting down and investigating new Gaskell letters. Her talk will cover academic theories of letter-writing; letters in Gaskell’s fiction and the wit and wisdom of Elizabeth Gaskell, according to Carolyn: “one of the best letter writers of the nineteenth-century: gossipy, acerbic and endlessly entertaining”

The meeting will take place at Francis Holland School, 39 Graham Terrace, London SW1W 8JF. Doors open at 12.45 – do bring a packed lunch to eat before the talk starts at 2.00 pm. Tea and coffee will be available afterwards and contributions of cake, etc, to go with these are very welcome!

All are welcome, both members and non-members. We ask for a £5 donation to cover our expenses.
