About this Event:

Two experts on Katherine Mansfield look at the life and legacy of the writer on the 90th anniversary of her death. Mansfield was one of the 20th century’s most accomplished short story writers and counted D H Lawrence and Virginia Woolf among her close friends. Among her best-known stories are The Garden Party, The Daughters of the Late Colonel and The Fly. She died at the age of 34 after contracting tuberculosis.

Dr Gerri Kimber has co-edited The Collected Fiction of Katherine Mansfield to coincide with the anniversary. It is the first truly complete collection of Mansfield’s stories. Kimber is a senior lecturer at the University of Northampton and co-editor of the journal, Katherine Mansfield Studies. Kathleen Jones is a biographer and poet. Her most recent biography is Katherine Mansfield: The Story-Teller.
