As part of Book Week Scotland’s year of Celebration, the National Library of Scotland is launching Juliet Shields’ new book, Scottish Women’s Writing in the Long Nineteenth Century: The Romance of Everyday Life.
In this event, Shields sits down with Emily Pickard and Charlotte Lauder to discuss her new book. They will talk about Shield's extensive archival research in discovering and exploring the lives and writings of these forgotten women writers. They ask, how can we find more of these forgotten women, and how can their texts find their way to a permanent space on contemporary bookshelves?
The discussion will celebrate the contributions of the National Library of Scotland in revitalising women’s writing and explore how we can diversify our reading of historic and contemporary writers.
Please note: closed captions will be available for this event.
