Small Wonder - Strange Offsprings, image from event to be held on 28 September 2017

The creativity of Bloomsbury has inspired many new works of art. Mark Haddon’s St Bride’s Bay, a tribute to Virginia Woolf, was commissioned for a special publication, Two Stories, celebrating this year’s 100th anniversary of the Hogarth Press. The second story is the first piece Virginia Woolf wrote for the Hogarth Press, ‘The Mark on the Wall’.

Alison MacLeod’s short story, included in her new collection, All the beloved ghosts, imagines Angelica Garnett, daughter of Vanessa Bell and child of Charleston, overcome by the past as she re-visits the house in its current incarnation: “Emotionally powerful… impeccably elegant, richly textured” (The Sunday Times).

Catherine Taylor is an arts journalist and former deputy director of English PEN and publisher of the Folio Society.

A great chance to hear writers at the top of their game read and discuss stories stimulated by the work of Virginia Woolf and by the original inhabitants of Charleston.
