Lunch-time Talk: Forgotten Female Novelists
Libby Tempest, current Chair of the Gaskell Society, has been doing some research into local female authors who followed in Elizabeth Gaskell’s footsteps 10-30 years after her death.

Join us for this fascinating lunch-time talk to find out about these unsung writers.
