…. listening to Louisa Treger at the Morrab Library. She spoke of Dorothy Richardson and of her forthcoming novel, inspired by a significant part of the author’s life with erudition and with love.
I started reading the first volume of Pilgrimage at the weekend, I am very taken with it, and it is lovely to know a little more of the background.
…. walking in the woods with a dog who has a wonderful instinct for finding mud – she loves it!
…. intrigued by a wide ranging discussion between crime writers Jessica Mann and Antonia Hodgson at the Exchange Gallery. It started with a discussion of the merit of contemporary versus historical crime fiction and moved on to consider much, much more.
I haven’t read much crime fiction at all this year, and I’d like to read a little more now.
It’s wonderful what you can do in a singly day off work in the middle of the week.
Thank you Penzance Literary Festival – and thank you Briar!
Hahaha! Briar is grinning! At least she’s small enough to rinse off quite easily.
That is one enticing line up of books! And Briar looks adorable, as always. Even muddy. :o)
So glad you’re enjoying Pilgrimage Jane – I loved the sequence when I read it many years ago!
What a lovely way to spend a day. I have Dorothy Richardson downloaded to my Kindle but haven’t got around to reading yet.
Briar looks exactly like my Charlie after a walk!
