Explore Mrs Dalloway's continuing legacy and influence

Join us for a day celebrating Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway, fittingly on a ‘Wednesday in mid-June’, and explore its continuing legacy and influence on contemporary novelists.

Virginia Woolf’s biographer Hermione Lee talks to novelist Alan Hollinghurst about Woolf’s legacy and influence, especially on his most recent novel, The Sparsholt Affair. Then literary critic Elaine Showalter, author of the seminal A Literature of their Own, and Sarah Churchwell, Chair of Public Understanding in the Humanities at the School of Advanced Study, discuss the significance of Mrs Dalloway and its effect on literary culture.

In partnership with The Royal Society of Literature
