When the idea for this meeting was conceived, Professor Ann Loades (formerly Chair of DCCA) willingly agreed to be one of three speakers in a post-pandemic northern launch/’roundtable’ discussion of Anglican Women Novelists from Charlotte Brontë to P.D. James (edited by Judith Maltby and Alison Shell, and now out in paperback). In addition to her own contribution on Evelyn Underhill, this stimulating collection includes essays on Dorothy L. Sayers, Rose Macaulay, Iris Murdoch, and Barbara Pym amongst others. Although Ann’s participation was sadly not to be, we are nevertheless delighted to welcome Clemence Schultze and Alison Shell as originally planned.
By invitation of Michael Hampel, Acting Dean, the event will take place in the Deanery’s Solarium, The College DH1 3EQ (entry via the Prior’s Hall).
There will be books on sale from Collected, Durham City’s newest independent bookshop.
The meeting will end at 3.15pm in time for Evensong (3.30pm) should you wish to attend. After this Service, there will also be a Drinks Reception in the Cloisters to celebrate the 25 th Anniversary of the Consort of Singers, the Cathedral’s adult volunteer choir.
