Online Event: Readings In Honour Of Mothers’ Day

Join us for a wonderful illustrated talk with readings about mothers and motherhood, in honour of Mother’s Day.

Elizabeth Gaskell’s experience as a mother informed much of her writing. Our House volunteers will offer literary criticism and perform a delightful selection of readings about mothers from Elizabeth’s letters, stories and novels. Join us from the comfort of your own home, to hear thoughts from the matriarch of ours!

Tickets £4

We've got a house...it certainly is a beauty...I must try and make the house give as much pleasure to others as I can.’

Elizabeth Gaskell, in a letter to her friend Eliza Fox in 1850.
