Dr Mark Towsey lecture at Chawton House Library


"Observe her Heedfully": Family, Friendship and a Lady's Life of Reading Researchers are becoming increasingly interested in the practice of reading. One keen reader who kept notes on her favourite books was Elizabeth Rose of Kilravock, the self-styled Queen of eighteenth-century Nairnshire in Scotland. Her letters and notebooks provide a rare insight into the reading habits of a female reader who lived in rural isolation. Historian Dr Mark Towsey from the University of Liverpool is interested in her life and times. Click here to hear his lecture at Chawton House Library
