Add The Rickard Sisters: The Likes of Us: Who Reads Old Ideas? to your Itinerary

We're huge fans of the older novel here at Gladstone's Library, but we regularly meet readers defeated by the average Victorian and Edwardian writer's appetite for tricky language, lengthy sentences, and triple-volume plots.

While the writing may not appeal, though, the ideas do! Civil rights, political freedom, class and gender politics: we could go on and on. So how best to capture the ideas, characters and stories of the grand Victorian novelists in a way that attracts those who would never actually read a Victorian novel?

Well, the graphic novel offers one way forward. Join the Rickard Sisters, Sophie (pictured) and Scarlett, for this illustrated exploration of bringing classic novels to brand new audiences.
