On April 25th we will discuss the theme 'Rebel Girls' featuring unforgettable women who chose to live life on their own terms. E.M Delafield is best known as the author of The Diary of a Provincial Lady
published in 1919 was her favourite. It is a deeply-felt, haunting exploration of the plight of young women given no opportunities in life but marriage and a scream of horror against the suffocating nature of Victorian values. Irene Nemirovsky is also best known for Suite Francaise
, published during the author's lifetime in 1936, was her 10th novel. The drama unfolds in a French courtroom where Gladys Eysenach stands trial for the murder of her much-younger lover. It is a story of mothers and daughters, desperation and vengeance, passion and obsession.
Our brand of discussion at Waterstones is always lighthearted, informal and strictly non-academic. Our journey will be fuelled by literary-inspired gin cocktails served in jam jars.
Numbers strictly limited. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £8/£6 (students) and include gin cocktails.
