Library Talk: Pre-Raphaelite Mythbuster: Gossip, Scandals And Secrets

02/11/2022 @ 14:00 - 15:00


We have another excellent talk coming up at the library on Wednesday 2nd November at 2pm from Dr Serena Trowbridge, Reader in Victorian Literature at Birmingham City University & Chair of the Pre-Raphaelite Society.

Serena will look at the evidence and explore a number of myths surrounding the Victorian artists associated with the Pre-Raphaelites. She will use serious research to answer daft questions including…

Did Elizabeth Siddall’s hair really grow in her coffin?
Why did Effie Gray really divorce Ruskin?
Did Rossetti really seduce all his models?
Did Holman Hunt see gnomes?

Email enquiries@morrablibrary.org.uk (or call 01736 364474) to add your name into the ballot by Monday 24th October. We will then draw out names & let you know if you have been successful.

£5 suggested donation to support Morrab Library. Refreshments will be served after the talk.
