Literary Event, Tue 13 Nov 2018


Whittaker Ave, Richmond,


Meet the author of a new book on the life of Virginia Woolf in Richmond. The author, Peter Fullagar, will be joined by a special guest speaker to talk about the life of the modernist writer. Cheryl Robson from Aurora Metro Books will also speak about the project to erect a statue of Virginia Woolf in Richmond.

Although more commonly associated with Bloomsbury, Virginia and her husband Leonard Woolf lived in Richmond upon Thames for ten years from the time of the First World War (1914-24). Refuting the common misconception that she disliked the town, this book explores her daily habits as well as her intimate thoughts while living at the pretty house she came to love – Hogarth House.

Drawing on information from her many letters and diaries, as well as Leonard’s autobiography, the editor reveals how Richmond’s relaxed way of life came to influence the writer, from her experimentation as a novelist to her work with her husband and the Hogarth Press.
