Discussing Brexit, Feminism and Grace at Catherine Quin’s Literary Salon

BOOK CLUB: Catherine Quin, the London-based designer known for her minimalist creations, has carved a path of her own, removed from the never-ending fashion cycle.
Her ultimate mission, she said, is to connect with her customers and to encourage them to “buy less, but better.”
Earlier this week she gathered a group of the women who most inspire her, including political activist Gina Miller, chef Jemima Jones, footwear designer Lily Hanbury and founder of Women for Women charity Brita Fernandez Schmidt, at the vintage book library on the top floor of Maison Assouline in London.
The women, who gathered for tea and literary readings, also featured in Quin’s latest campaign and modeled her new collection, Women of Grace. The collection is filled with elegant shirtdresses, fuss-free jumpsuits and oversized tailoring in the designer’s signature neutral palette.
“I wanted to celebrate qualities that aren’t normally brought to the fore nowadays. This year there has been a lot of toxicity in politics and I’ve really been inspired by women who stood up for what they believe in, and who were really dignified in how they dealt with all the criticism and the furor. It just made me think how grace is not talked about so much

Reading Beyond the Book: The Social Practices of Contemporary Literary Culture

Reading Beyond the Book: The Social Practices of Contemporary Literary Culture


Literary culture has become a form of popular culture over the last fifteen years thanks to the success of televised book clubs, film adaptations, big-box book stores, online bookselling, and face-to-face and online book groups. This volume offers the first critical analysis of mass reading events and the contemporary meanings of reading in the UK, USA, and Canada based on original interviews and surveys with readers and event organizers.

The resurgence of book groups has inspired new cultural formations of what the authors call “shared reading.” They interrogate the enduring attraction of an old technology for readers, community organizers, and government agencies, exploring the social practices inspired by the sharing of books in public spaces and revealing the complex ideological investments made by readers, cultural workers, institutions, and the mass media in the meanings of reading.

Literary Research and the Victorian and Edwardian Ages, 1830-1910: Strategies and Sources

Literary Research and the Victorian and Edwardian Ages, 1830-1910: Strategies and Sources


The diverse literatures of Victorian and Edwardian Britain have provided a wealth of research materials for novice and expert researchers alike. Although the body of scholarship for the Edwardian Age is smaller than that of the Victorian, researchers should have no shortage of resources for learning more about the literatures of either time period. While many of the novels, plays, poetry, and prose from the Victorian and Edwardian Ages are still readily available in print, a vast amount of literature has long since fallen out of print. Recent efforts in digitization-the Victorian Women Writers Project; English Literary Periodicals, 1681-1914; Early British Periodicals, 1681-1921; 19th Century British Library Newspapers; 19th Century U.K. Periodicals; Times Digital Archives; Victorian Popular Culture; and even Google Books-have helped to make many texts more widely accessible. Literary Research and the Victorian and Edwardian Ages, 1830-1910 discusses traditional and new resources for researching this period of British literature and the ways in which those resources can be used in conjunction with one another. By helping readers navigate the resources and issues particular to these literatures, this book will serve as an essential guide to researching the literatures of the Victorian and Edwardian Ages.

Canada’s rich literary heritage, dominated by a multicultural and multilingual presence, reflects the country’s unique history and experience. In addition, an emerging body of new writers is redefining both the geographic and metaphorical boundaries of Canadian literature. Coupled with the propagation of digital technologies, Canada’s burgeoning publishing industry presents unique challenges for both the introductory and seasoned literary researcher.

This guide addresses the tools and best practices for selecting and evaluating print and electronic sources related to the extensive and varied literature of Canada. Beginning with an overview of the strategies needed to conduct online research, individual chapters examine general literary reference materials; relevant online library catalogs, including national and union library catalogs; scholarly journals; archival collections; microform and digital collections; periodicals, literary magazines, newspapers, and reviews; and Web and electronic resources. Special topics discussed include “little magazines,” scholarly gateways, and cultural resources. The guide culminates in a chapter that illustrates the application of the strategies explored to solve a research problem. The strategies discussed within the guide are applicable to both canonical and lesser-known authors, therefore making this work relevant to anyone interested in researching Canadian literature.

Used – This second volume in Solzhenitsyn’s narrative chronicles the appalling inhumanity of the Soviets’ “destructive-labor camps” and the fate of prisoners in them–felling timber, building canals and railroads, and mining gold without equipment or adequate food and clothing, and subject always to the caprices of the camp authorities. Most tragic of all is the life of the women prisoners and the luckless children they bear. Once again, this chronicle of appalling inhumanity is made endurable b
