Gaynor Arnold to give the School of English (Birmingham City University) annual lecture.

Gaynor has been invited to speak on ‘Inventing the Past’ and she will talk about the genre sometimes described as ‘bio-fiction’. Her two nineteenth century novels, Girl in a Blue Dress and After Such Kindness are works of the imagination, but centre on actual historical people. Girl in a Blue Dress looks at the marriage of Charles Dickens from his wife’s point of view, while After such Kindness re-imagines the relationship between the child Alice and the adult Lewis Carroll.

Date: 17th Dec 2014. Venue: Baker 508, City North Campus (Perry Barr). 1-2pm.
