Francesca Wade and Mo Moulton Charleston Festival Event Image

Frances Spalding, art historian, biographer and author of ‘The Bloomsbury Group’, chairs a discussion with Mo Moulton and Francesca Wade about two groups of activists and experimenters who were living and working in the interwar urban hubs of London and Oxford.

They include modernist poet H. D., detective novelist Dorothy L. Sayers, classicist Jane Harrison, economic historian Eileen Power, and writer and publisher Virginia Woolf.

Mo Moulton, author of Mutual Admiration Society, and Francesca Wade, author of ‘Square Haunting’, reveal what drew these women to these cities, in search of a space where they could live, love and, above all, work independently.

Limited number of under-30s tickets available for £10
