Francesca Wade

SQUARE HAUNTING – FIVE WOMEN, FREEDOM AND LONDON BETWEEN THE WARS

Monday 28 September, 4:00pm-5:00pm
Fowey Town Hall
£8

Mecklenburgh Square, on the radical fringes of interwar Bloomsbury, was home to activists, experimenters and revolutionaries; among them were the modernist poet H. D., detective novelist Dorothy L. Sayers, classicist Jane Harrison, economic historian Eileen Power, and writer and publisher Virginia Woolf. They each alighted there seeking a space where they could live, love and, above all, work independently. This fascinating biography explores how these trailblazing women pushed the boundaries of literature, scholarship, and social norms, forging careers that would have been impossible without these spaces of their own. Francesca has written for many newspapers and magazines, including the Financial Times, London Review of Books, Times Literary Supplement and New Statesman.
