22nd March 2021

The second of our Riversmeet slow reading courses is Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway. The slow learning approach will give us the time and space to examine the tensions between the private sense of self and a social persona, the effect of trauma on survivors of war and pandemic and to ask ourselves why it is that this book still has important things to say to us nearly a hundred years later. Lots of people would love to read Virginia Woolf’s work but have felt uncertain about how to approach it, with a little help you will be able not only to read it but to really enjoy it, we invite you to spend a little time in the company of some great literature.
