If you are lucky enough to be one of the 98 who will attend the Jan. 26 sold-out Virginia Woolf Birthday Lecture, sponsored by the Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain, please note that the location for the talk, titled “Virginia Woolf’s Non-Literary Reputation,” has changed.

Where to find it

The new location is Birkbeck, room MAL B20 at Birkbeck’s Malet Street campus. The entrance is round the back from Malet Street, in Torrington Square, WC1E 7HX. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. and the lecture is at 2 p.m.

Organizers advise that you allow a good ten minutes to find the lecture theatre, which is in the basement B20. Members of the Executive Council to guide attendees and signs. You can also review the map (the Main building is number 1 on the map).

Immediately following the lecture from 3.30 p.m., the Reception (drinks, cake, raffle and book stall) will take place in the dining-room of the Tavistock Hotel at 48-55 Tavistock Square WC1H 9EH. The hotel has generously provided their services.
