The Council

The George Eliot Fellowship

Nuneaton born and bred, I won a copy of Adam Bede as a prize for a junior school George Eliot project, and later wrote a dissertation for my English degree on the male protagonists in George Eliot’s major novels. My career in arts marketing took me all round the country until I returned to live in the Nuneaton area in the 1990s.

I went along to some Fellowship events, got chatting to John Burton, became enthused once more and was recruited to the Fellowship Council.
