Harriet Baker: Rural Hours

Thu 6 June | 4pm

 The Country Lives of Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Townsend Warner and Rosamond Lehmann

Harriet Baker explores the radical and creative potential of rural places in the story of three very different women who moved to the countryside and were forever changed by it. Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Townsend Warner and Rosamond Lehmann emerge as passionate, visionary writers following periods of creative uncertainty and private disappointment when these pioneering writers are invigorated by new landscapes, personal freedom and creative prose.
