Rebecca Mead: The Road to Middlemarch (in association with Bristol Festival of Ideas)

Thursday 20th March 2014 6:30pm - 7:30pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Published when George Eliot was fifty-one, Middlemarchis arguably her greatest novel, famously described by Virginia Woolf as 'one of the few English novels written for grown-up people'. Rebecca Mead was a young woman when she first read Middlemarch. She has read it many times since, interpreting and discovering it anew. In The Road to Middlemarch she explores her own relationship with the novel, interweaving readings with an investigation of George Eliot's unconventional, inspiring life and reflecting on her own youth, relationships and marriage. Here she discusses her book, a mixture of literary biography and personal memoir, this celebration shows how we can live richer and more fulfilling lives through engagement with great literary works. The talk will be followed by a signing.
