Virginia Woolf visits the Campbell House Museum (almost literally)

Welcome to 1928.  You’re at Girton Women’s College and tonight’s the night Virginia Woolf is going to speak. There’s light music, you’ve had a couple drinks, you’ve just read an excellent excerpt from a classic novel whose home is in the library, and your mind is thriving in this enchanted atmosphere.  You’re hearing true anecdotes and written stories from Virgina herself. She’s talking about women – women as writers and women as characters in the stories they possess.  It’s all very surreal; important. It’s going to influence history in ways you can not even imagine.
