Victorian Mavericks: Nuala O’Connor, Bernie McGill & Caroline Busher

Victorian Mavericks: Nuala O’Connor, Bernie McGill & Caroline Busher

In the Victorian era, women were forced to endure many inequalities in terms of marriage, finances and social status. Viewed as belonging to the domestic sphere, they were expected to provide their husbands with a clean home, food on the table and children.

In this special event, Nuala O’Connor (Becoming Belle), Bernie McGill (The Watch House) and Caroline Busher (The Ghosts of Magnificent Children) explore the lives of Victorian female characters in their novels and the ways those women and girls defied conventions of the time.

We apologise that due to unforeseen circumstances Bernie McGill will no longer appear in this line-up.
