Eating with Victoria: A Greedy Queen
Friday 17 March 2017
Fairfax House, Castlegate, York, YO1 9RN
Preview Lecture and Book Launch with Dr. Annie Gray.

Part of the 2017 York Literature Festival
Food historian Dr Annie Gray offers a new perspective on Britain’s best-known monarch, bringing her to (large) life through her food.

Annie will guide us through Victoria’s life in food, as well as showing how her appetites shaped both her and the nation which she governed. Annie is the resident food historian on BBC Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet, and is specialist in 18thand 19th century British food and dining.

The event starts at 7.00pm, Tickets are £14.00 and includes a post-lecture wine reception.

Pictures of Perfection...Make Me Sick and Wicked
Friday 14 July 2017
Fairfax House, Castlegate, York, YO1 9RN
Jane Austen & reading for lies with Emma Major

As Austen wrote to her niece Fanny Knight, whose admirer had criticized the comportment of Austen’s heroines: ‘Pictures of Perfection, as you know, make me sick and wicked’.
In this lecture, Dr. Emma Major looks at the ways in which Austen encourages us to be suspicious of perfection, and to become better readers of character. Indeed the case could be made that Austen’s fiction offers the reader a first-rate lesson in detective skills. As P.D. James points out, detective fiction ‘does not require a murder’ but ‘does require a mystery’ – and as we’ll see, Austen provides plenty of these, continuing to inspire crime fiction writers of today.

Dr. Major (University of York) investigates Austen’s lifelong fascination with letters to show how Austen uses them to teach her heroines to become better readers of flawed human nature.

The event starts at 7.00pm.
Tickets are £14.00 and includes a post-lecture wine reception.
Booking is recommended. Tickets can be purchased prior to the event by visiting Fairfax House or calling (01904) 655543.
