Mary Barton’s Manchester

Wednesday 20 November, 2019, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for an evening talk on the 1840s Manchester of Elizabeth Gaskell’s first novel, Mary Barton.

Back by popular demand, the Gaskell Society’s Dr Diane Duffy will lead you on a literary journey of discovery of the places, buildings and landmarks of the city as featured in the book, with extracts from the text to map the way.

This fascinating talk will interest anyone who wants to find out more about historical Manchester in Elizabeth Gaskell’s writing.

Tickets are £8. Included in the event is a glass of wine to round off the perfect literary evening.
