Readalong of George Gissing’s ‘The Odd Women’

You may not, this summer, be able to visit the Gissing Centre in Wakefield, (the childhood home of renowned Victorian novelist George Gissing) but you may have time to enjoy a ‘Readalong” of his novel “The Odd Women” which is taking place between the 1st and 16th May via YouTube.

The novel explores the role of women in society, marriage, morals and the early feminist movement.
