DallowayDay 2018: Woolf, Walking & Writing
Saturday 16th June 14:00 at London - Gower Street
"I love walking in London" said Mrs Dalloway. "Really it's better than walking in the country."
In one of the greatest novels of the 20th century, Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway, set in June 1923, Clarissa Dalloway loves walking as much as did her creator. So this year's DallowayDay takes as its theme 'Woolf, Walking and Writing'.
Gower St. Waterstones and the Virginia Woolf Society of GB invite you to celebrate DallowayDay with us here in Bloomsbury.
We start with an hour's walk (2-3pm) around Bloomsbury guided by Jean Moorcroft Wilson (author of Virginia Woolf's London) to places familiar to Virginia Woolf and her friends. (Please note: numbers for the walk are restricted to 25)
The walk ends at Gower St. Waterstones, where we'll have a panel and audeince discussion (3.30-4.30pm) on Woolf, Walking and Writing ibn Bloomsbury with author & essayist Farah Ahamed and art-writer & White Review co-editor Francesca Wade.
At 5.30pm we'll have time for a celebratory glass of wine, then at 6pm Maggie Humm (author of Snapshots of Bloomsbury) will talk about Woolf and photography, illustrated with photographs taken by Woolf and her Bloomsbury friends, starting with images that match up with key moments in Mrs Dalloway.
Tickets are available for each event and the day - please see below.
