Description

Tuesday 2 July, 6 pm (entrance not before 5.30 pm)

Judith Maltby and Alison Shell, ‘Excellent Women: the tradition of Anglican female novelists’.

What do the novelists Charlotte Brontë, Charlotte M. Yonge, Dorothy L. Sayers, Rose Macaulay, Barbara Pym, Iris Murdoch and P.D. James have in common? These women, and others, were inspired to write fiction through their relationship with the Church of England. This talk, given by the co-editors of the essay collection Anglican Women Novelists: From Charlotte Brontë to P.D. James (Bloomsbury) will explore the relationship between Anglicanism, fiction and women’s writing, and be followed by a launch for the book.

For any queries please call 020 7 898 1400, or email melissa.harrison@churchofengland.org.

Guests should arrive via the main Gatehouse of Lambeth Palace.
