Salon Series: Lucinda Hawksley on Pre-Raphaelite Women (note new location!)

September 16, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for the next in our series of intimate lectures by renowned experts -- and our first to take place in the fabulous Club Café Royal.

The dynamic and engaging author, Lucinda Hawksley, will share with us her insights into the under-appreciated pre-Raphaelite women (artists, muses and models).  The evening will cover the tragic life of poet, artist and muse Lizzie Siddal, as well as the influential roles played by many other women, including Christina Rossetti.
