Guest lecture in English Literature

Paula Bryne was a guest lecturer in the the English Literature class – and she brought her adorable dog with her too!

Bryne talked about Jane Austen and her interest in ‘footnote’ figures – i.e. ones that have only ever appeared as footnotes who she then wrote biographies on (Mary Robinson [Perdita] and Kick Kennedy) and her move into fiction writing.  She published her first novel , Look to Your Wife, in April!
