Event description

Description

Doors: 6:45pm

In Mrs Gaskell & Me, author and scholar Nell Stevens (Bleaker House) blends memoir and fiction to explore her life alongside that of Manchester’s own Elizabeth Gaskell. In 1857, following the controversial publication of The Life of Charlotte Bronte, Gaskell flees to Rome, where she meets Charles Norton, a lifelong friend and the love of her life. In 2013, Nell falls in love with Max, a man who lives in Paris and then Boston. As they attempt to make their long-distance love work, Nell embarks on a PhD and the parallels between her circumstances and those of Gaskell begin to reveal themselves. Nell Stevens will be in conversation with Deborah Grace a local journalist and member of the DAF Board. Following their discussion, there will be a Q&A with the audience and a book signing session.
