Literary Reputations: Katherine Mansfield with Kathleen Jones at Manchester City Library
In this year’s Literary Reputations event we examine the life and writing career of one of the most influential short story writers of the 20th century, Katherine Mansfield. Drawing upon many archives, letters and journals, writer Kathleen Jones creates a new picture of Mansfield for the 21st century, one that goes beyond her death in 1923 and includes the attempts of her widower to manipulate the posthumous publication of her unpublished work. Kathleen Jones is a best-selling literary biographer of such diverse figures as Christina Rossetti and Catherine Cookson. She is also a published poet and short fiction writer.
Off to this shortly. Should be fun :)
