Alexandra Harris, former pupil, lecturer and nationally renowned author, returned to Farlington to give an exclusive seminar to Sixth Form students on Virginia Woolf.

Harris led a 90 minute discussion looking at Mrs Dalloway which is one of the AS English Literature texts examined this summer. The girls were delighted with her presentation and came out bubbling with both enthusiasm and ideas. Several were also clutching signed copies of her book!

Katie Maguire commented, “I really enjoyed meeting Alexandra Harris. It was great to get a new perspective on the novel and I definitely have some new ideas to think about in the run up to the exam. She was a really inspirational woman, with such a wide knowledge of her field; it was a brilliant opportunity for all of us.”
