Public event - Talk by Dave Cope     All welcome - free entry with a collection to cover costs. Refreshments available.

William was a Chartist, a Republican, a campaigner in support of refugees, a journalist, a poet and a great wood engraver. Eliza, brought up in Keswick, was a Republican, agnostic and the first woman to earn a living as a journalist. She was the successful author of a Cumbrian dialect novel, a novel with the first literary depiction of a lesbian household, and one of the most original fictional autobiographies in English where the gender of nearly every character is reversed. Together they published one of the best guides to the Lake District.

This event forms part of our "Painting the Auld Grey Town Red" series of events in 2016.
