Group Convener - Muriel Strachan (Tel: 0l7687 75598)
Currently the 14-strong group meets in a member's home in Portinscale.
Additional members are welcome though if the group gets too big to meet in people's houses then the venue will change to a public one.
At our monthly meetings I will lead discussions on the Lake Poets, Wordsworth, Coleridge,Southey, and minor poets connected with them. I am currently writing a book, a biography of the Wordsworth family, with my son John who is Professor in English Literature at Bath Spa University.
In addition we will undertake outings to places of interest, such as Dove Cottage, the Jerwood Centre, Greta Hall, Allen Bank, Wordsworths House, Cockermouth, and one or two other places of interest.
There will also be discussions on novels and poems and drama led by other members of the group.
Any U3A member is welcome to join us. They can contact me either by email using the contact button above or by phone on 017687-75598.
