The SuchFriends blog has announced that it will travel back in time to 1912, the year the RMS Titanic sank — and the year of a major event in Virginia Woolf’s life.
Blogger Kathleen Dixon Donnelly says she will discuss Woolf’s major event, as well as others that took place in Ireland, England, France and America that year. On her journey, she will ask questions such as these:
- What Pittsburgh-born writer was the talk of Dublin cafes?
- What literary couple got married in England? (Spoiler alert: Virginia and Leonard were married on Aug. 10, 1912.)
- What ballet scandalized Paris?
- What future Algonquin Round Table member was president of the Harvard Lampoon?
Donnelly advises watching her blog soon after Jan. 1 “for all the 1912 gossip about writers” and invites readers to submit answers to the questions she poses via a “Comment.”
