Emma Claire Sweeney and I already blogged about our forthcoming book on Something Rhymed, but I thought it would be a good idea to share a link to that post here too. A Secret Sisterhood, which focuses on the literary friendships of Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot and Virginia Woolf, will be published by Aurum Press in the UK and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in the USA, both in late 2017.

Emma and I are heavily into research and writing now, but we look forward to sharing snippets of the stories of these friendships on our website, and delving into everything in much greater depth in our book, A Secret Sisterhood.

Emma Claire Sweeney and I will be giving a talk at NYU London tomorrow (3rd December).

‘A Secret Sisterhood’ will focus on our research into female literary friendship, in particular the friendships of George Eliot and Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf.

We’ll let our Something Rhymed readers know how it went in an upcoming blog post, and you can find out more about these relationships, and many others, by visiting Something Rhymed.
