Online Talk: Cranford For Beginners

In the first place, Cranford is in possession of the Amazons; all the holders of houses, above a certain rent, are women.

Elizabeth Gaskell, Cranford

Have you ever wanted to read Cranford or wondered why it’s one of Elizabeth Gaskell’s most popular novels? Join Libby Tempest, Chair of the Gaskell Society, for an introduction to this well-loved classic of Victorian literature, in our winter evening online talk.

It’s the perfect complement to our exciting new Cranford exhibition here at the House in 2021, where you can discover more about the book, its inspiration and its legacy.
