Dr Serena Trowbridge – Reading Group – Frenchman’s Creek

Thursday 16 May, 9:00am-10:30am
Fowey Parish Hall

Join Dr Serena Trowbridge for an informal reading group discussion on du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek.This classic novel is one which is often described as ‘romantic’, and yet is perplexingly both romantic and pragmatic, dreamy yet realistic. Come along and discuss whether this is a ‘pirate romance’ or a clear-sighted approach to women’s lot.

Dr Serena Trowbridge is Reader in Victorian Literature at Birmingham City University. She specialises in Pre-Raphaelite women; her last book was My Ladys Soul: The Poetry of Elizabeth Siddall, and she is currently working on an anthology of writing by Pre-Raphaelite women. She is Chair of the Pre-Raphaelite Society and Senior Vice-President of the Birmingham & Midland Institute.
