‘Lives do not serve as models; only stories do that.’
The often public intent of the literary diary has always made it much more than an account of daily life. Carolyn Heilbrun’s seminal work, Writing a Woman’s Life, is the basis for this ‘salon’ event looking at the relationship between women’s diaries and other media.
Artists, musicians and researchers respond to the works of such women as Fanny Hensel and Virginia Woolf through the lens of Heilbrun’s four categories of life-writing. This is the second in the series entitled Salon Without Boundaries presented by Dr Briony Cox-Williams at various locations across London.
