Eastbourne Central

The English Novel 1800-1950

3rd Wednesday of the month 10am-midday
Venue: Community Wise, Ocklynge Road, Eastbourne BN21 1PY

This group is aimed at those who are keen novel readers and have a particular interest in the ‘classic novels’ of the 19th century and first half of the 20th. The sessions will be run along the lines of a book club: members of the group will take it in turns to nominate a novel and will introduce it and talk a little about the author. This will be followed by a general discussion about the novel: its characters, themes, context etc. We will also watch video lectures on the history of the novel and on individual authors. Group members will need to have the time to read one novel a month in advance of the meeting.
