David Paterson will give a brief talk about the work he undertook to produce this book, which throws new light on a hugely important aspect of George Eliot’s background.
There will be wine, nibbles and fruit juice and an opportunity to purchase the book (£12.00)
David Paterson has published several books on the history of local schools, notably King Edward Vl Grammar School in Nuneaton, Chilvers Coton Free School and Astley School. His research widened to incorporate more about George Eliot’s family, notable his father and this book is the result of many hours searching the Newdigate papers at Warwick CRO. The result breaks new ground and will surprise many scholars of George Eliot with the light it throws on Robert Evans and his contemporaries, and the influence they had on her writing.
