SOLD OUT – Virago Speakeasy at Pages Cheshire Street: On Witches

October 30 @ 19:00 - 21:00

£5
On Witches
On Witches

Virago Speakeasy at Pages Cheshire Street is a new event partnership bringing together Virago and non-Virago authors and readers in a dynamic, challenging and interactive forum.

Join us on the eve of Halloween for a special Virago event on witches. From ancient folklore to gothic historical novels, from Trump’s campaign propaganda to protest movements, from the Bible to pop music, women have been called witches – and many are proud to claim the title. Are witches the wise women in society, the rebels or the villains – and how does their depiction in our favourite stories shape our understanding of their role? Grab a friend, a drink and share tales of your wickedest women for a spellbinding night of literary chat (and a few cackles).

With Shahrukh Husain, author of The Virago Book of Witches and Imogen Hermes Gowar, author of The Mermaid & Mrs Hancock

The Virago Speakeasy at Pages is sponsored by Lussa Gin and Wild Card Brewery, two great indie drinks companies run by women.
