The George Eliot Review 24 (1993)


Published by The George Eliot Review Online https://GeorgeEliotReview.org


The London Branch celebrated George Eliot's birthday by bolding a luncheon in her honor on 29th November at St Philip’s Church, Earls Court Road, London W8. This was attended by about 40 members and friends, and was preceded by a programme of readings devised by Margaret Wolfit and taken from Romola and Daniel Deronda. Margaret had chosen the appropriate title of The Italian Connection, and her sequence of extracts was greatly appreciated by the audience who listened to her with rapt attention for more than an hour. The luncheon followed, and once again we are indebted to Michael and Suzanne Forrest and their helpers for providing an excellent meal in such attractive and relaxed surroundings. The London Branch needs new, active and supportive members, and anyone interested in obtaining details should write either to The Fellowship Secretary, Mrs. Kathleen Adams (address on inside front cover of this Review), or to the Revd. Michael Forrest, St Philip’s Vicarage, 46 Pembroke Road, London W8 6NU.
