Four Stories: A Guided Victorian Reading Series

October 25th, 2015 - December 6th, 2015

The Four Stories - a guided short story reading series

Gathering around the hearth to read and discuss short stories was a popular Victorian pastime.

Join us this fall at Dalnavert Museum and Visitors’ Centre as we renew this tradition and explore the curious and compelling world of Victorian short fiction.

Guided by Vanessa Warne, an award-winning professor at the University of Manitoba, the group will discuss four Victorian short stories on four Sunday afternoons from 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. At each session, Vanessa will lead the conversation and share interesting details about Victorian life. She will also guide the group through a different floor of Dalnavert to reflect on how that particular storey relates to the story under discussion

Copies of the stories will be provided prior to the meetings so everyone can join the conversation and share their insights.

Session 1: Sunday, October 25, 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
“The Fall of the House of Usher,” Edgar Allen Poe

Session 2: Sunday, November 8, 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
“The Old Nurse’s Story,”     Elizabeth Gaskell

Session 3: Sunday, November 22 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m
“The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” Arthur Conan Doyle

Session 4: Sunday, December 6, 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
“The Yellow Wallpaper,” Charlotte Perkins Gilman

The cost to register is $35.00 for Members and $50.00 for non-members. Registration includes participation in all four sessions, entry to the museum and a souvenir booklet containing all four stories.

The First World War in Letters: A Public Event at the Archives

November 10th, 2015 - November 10th, 2015 The First World War in Letters: A Public Event at the Archives

“I cannot think of anything to write about that does not in one way or another swing round to the great sorrowful war. There is not a gleam of hope in sight but perhaps we have walked so long in darkness that we have ceased to look for the dawn.” Frank Leathers, November 29, 1917 (Archives of Manitoba, Frank Leathers fonds, P2992/7)

Please join us at the Archives for a public event on November 10, 2015 at 7 pm in the Archives Research Room! On the eve of Remembrance Day, we will feature readings from original letters written by Manitoban soldiers who served in the First World War. These letters are from the collections of the Archives of Manitoba.

During the war, letters sent to and from the front were the main form of communication between soldiers and their families and friends back home. Soldiers wrote letters from the trenches, from hospital beds and from training barracks. They wrote to mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, friends and sweethearts. Many collections of letters from the First World War have been donated to the Archives of Manitoba. These letters are a powerful record of individual soldiers, recording their thoughts and feelings during the war.
