23 August 2018

Literary editor Rosemary Goring explores Muriel Spark’s The Girls of Slender Means. Set in 1945's London in a boarding house for young ladies, the story follows the girls, their lives and love affairs, until a shocking event transforms the wry comedy of their existence into tragedy. It has been described as Spark at her very best. Expect an open discussion from the start; you can read the book ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards. Part of our Muriel Spark 100 series of events.

Date: Thursday 23rd August

Time: 1.00pm

Venue: Writer's Retreat
