‘The Pestilence at Noonday’, C. Sorabji – The Victorian Society

24 July @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm BST

This event is part of the Short Story Reading Group collection.

Current Theme: Colonial Short Stories: Starting with stories of India.

The writer, herself an Indian, sought to better the lives of her fellow countrywomen. This story, from a collection called Love and Life behind the Purdah, shows the lowly status of a woman in relation to her husband and also touches on how the British have added another layer of complexity to this.

Upon registration you will receive a link to an on-line copy of the text and, as it is a short story group, it will require no more than an evening’s preparation to read the required material. At each session there is a brief introduction to the work, followed by a group discussion in a relaxed atmosphere, with wine and nibbles supplied.
