George Eliot Fellowship

The George Eliot Fellowship

Feature 74


The George Eliot Fellowship was founded by Mr A F Cross on 9th November 1930.
The title of 'Fellowship' rather than society was a personal choice of Mr Cross, as he felt it to be most suited to admirers of a woman who still had a message for present and future generations.
Silas Marner abridged by Vivienne Wood

illustrated by Sarah Moore

There is still chance to buy this delightful edition as a present. We know that youngsters love it and the generosity of the Nicholas Chamberlaine Trust in Bedworth enabled the Fellowship to give a copy to every primary school pupil in the Bedworth area

But since then we have discovered that many adults also love this edition. The story is a delight of course and the illustrations are beautiful, as the examples here show.
