The Victorian Book Group meets every third Thursday, 1-2.15pm and is led by Karen Laird.

Usual house admission price applies, plus £1 per session.

In 2019, we will explore the genre of the family saga and continue our investigation of how the British novel developed in conversation with other national literary traditions.
New members are warmly welcomed to attend our meetings. No need to book – just turn up!
