Reading The Nineteenth-Century Online: Esther Waters

Join Sherry Ashworth for the last in our perennially popular reading course – now online – to explore depictions of motherhood in the nineteenth-century novel.

In this session we’ll be exploring George Moore’s Esther Waters.

Grab your book and hunker down for some absorbing spring-time reading, and then join the session for a fun and informative closer look at the text and the context of the novel.

The course is suitable for the general reader who wants to delve deeper into reading the nineteenth-century.  Readers will be encouraged to discuss the book during the Zoom sessions, under Sherry’s expert guidance, and numbers will be limited to allow an inclusive discussion with chance for all to take part. Please note that this is a workshop rather than a lecture and you will get more out of the session if you have read the novel.

Tickets £10
