Martineau Society Conference - 26 July 2018

Harriet Martineau Society Conference in London 2018
This year the Martineau Society Conference was held in Dr Williams's Library, Bloomsbury, London, and Val wrote a short dialogue for this between Harriet Martineau and Charlotte Bronte. The performance was given in the library after the conference dinner by (pictured above) Matilda Thorpe on the left playing Harriet and on the right Catherine Harvey playing Charlotte. Val's grandmother Vera Wheatley wrote the first really important biography on Harriet Martineau, first published in 1957.
