Lyndall Gordon: Outsiders: The Royal Literary Fund Talk

15th October 2017, 15:30 to 16:30, Durham Town Hall

Durham Book Festival event
Chaired by Durham University Professor Clare Harman.
Outsiders tells the stories of five novelists – Mary Shelley, Emily Brontë, George Eliot, Olive Schreiner, Virginia Woolf – and their famous novels. We have long known their individual greatness but in linking their creativity to their lives as outsiders, this biography throws new light on the genius they share.

Lyndall Gordon is the prize-winning author of six biographies. She will be in conversation with award-winning biographer Claire Harman, whose book Charlotte Brontë: A Life was published in 2015.
