“Be curious, be interested and love… your stories and your artwork will flourish.” Val McDermid spoke the final words of Open the Door 2017, bringing this inaugural day-long literary gathering to a close and at the same time beautifully summing up the warm and convivial nature of the discussions and conversations that the events provoked.
May’s book is The Chimes by Anna Smaill, a debut novel that was longlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize.
Did you know we’re the only Accredited Museum in the UK dedicated to women’s history? In fact, we’re a multi-award winning Accredited Museum. and in December 2015 we were also designated as a ‘Recognised Collection of National Significance’.
We want to ensure that as many women as possible can benefit from our unique literary events.
