On Tuesday 22 October 2019, at the Framework Knitters Museum, at 2:30pm, Anita Young, Secretary of Nottingham Dickens Fellowship will present readings from various Victorian authors. There will be lively “appearances” from Dickens, Eliot and Gaskell, all performed in costume.
Anita is a past treasurer of the International Dickens Fellowship and Secretary of the Alliance of Literary Societies and has been delighting audiences with her readings for many years.
Kathy Powis, Chair of The Friends, explained “Novels, often published in serial form were the soap operas of Victorian times. Heroes and villains, humour and pathos are all there. Modern film versions are enjoyed by us all but hearing the words of these great writers read out loud is something else. Anita is a very entertaining and accomplished reader.”
The event starts at 2.30pm, tickets at £5 are available from the Museum or phone 0115 9845375.
