Helena Whitbread & Clara Barley’s Anne Lister
16 October 2019T:01422 240024
Back by popular demand! Join authors of Anne Lister fiction and non-fiction Helena Whitbread and Clara Barley as they discuss their shared love of ‘Halifax’s greatest lesbian’. Our last Helena Whitbread and Clara Barley events both completely sold out. So we’ve teamed the pair up, giving you a unique chance to hear them discuss their fondness of Lister.
Meet Helena – the author who has helped reveal the story of Anne Lister to the world. After 30 years decoding Lister’s diaries, there’s probably no-one who knows her like Helena. Through Clara Barley’s insights from working at Anne Lister’s home, Shibden Hall, and the pair’s involvement in the Gentleman Jack TV series, Whitbread and Barley will explore where fact meets fiction in the Anne Lister story and how their work to share Lister with the masses continues.
