Reading Anna Barbauld in Bad Times: Sunday 26th March, 2pm

Anna Barbauld

Anna Barbauld (1743-1825) of Stoke Newington

As a teacher, a poet, a literary critic, and a political polemicist, Anna Barbauld occupied a prominent position in 19th century English life and culture. A resident in Stoke Newington for many years (Barbauld Road is named after her), she established a Women’s Reading Group in Church Street, and played a key role in Stoke Newington’s influential Dissenting community.

Norma Clarke, one of Britain’s foremost historians, will discuss Anna Barbauld’s connection with Stoke Newington and renew the claim that she was ‘one of the great minds which belong to all time.’

Tickets £5 including a glass of wine, beer or soft drink. Proceeds to the Clissold Park User Group. Doors open 1.30pm. Ticket price includes a glass of wine or a soft drink.
