An illustrated talk with dramatic readings by Janet Pressley about these two remarkable, radical women – Mary Wollstonecraft – writer and feminist – and her daughter Mary Shelley – author of Frankenstein.
The story of their lives in the context of the Age of Enlightenment and the Romantic Era is truly astonishing, particularly with reference to the upheaval and change caused by the French Revolution.
