Professor Martin Hewitt (History, Anglia Ruskin University) will be giving a paper at our next Gaskell Society branch meeting on ‘‘Domestic visiting as a means of social knowledge and reconciliation in Gaskell’s fiction’. Do come along; all are very welcome!
All meetings are held at Francis Holland School for Girls, 39 Graham Terrace London SW1W 8JF The school is a three-minute walk from Sloane Square tube station, which is on the District and Circle line (see the map below).
Everyone is welcome any time after 12.45pm. Please bring a packed lunch. Talks begin at 2pm and usually last about an hour. Each talk is followed by questions, and then tea is served.
At each meeting there is a bring-and-buy book stall in aid of The Gaskell House in Manchester. Please bring any books that you wish to rehome and which will be of interest to other members, marked with an appropriate price. If, at the end of the meeting, your books have not been sold, we will ask you to take them away with you again.
We ask for a contribution of £5.00 to cover speakers’ expenses, a donation to the school and tea.
