The Curious Tale of Eliza Raine

3rd Apr 2020

Square Chapel, Copper Auditorium, doors 12, start 12.15pm to 1:30 pm

Tickets: £10.50

Anne Lister followed a long and winding trail of women, before finding Ann Walker and taking the Sacrament at Holy Trinity / Goodramgate. But the first of those was Eliza Raine.

Their relationship went far beyond the dormered room the two young women shared at the Manor School in York, and finally ended at the same asylum Ann Walker was forced to enter.

Join author Patricia Hughes at the Copper Auditorium at Square Chapel as she discusses this very important chapter in Anne’s storied past, as described in her book, “The Early Life of Miss Anne Lister and the Curious Tale of Miss Eliza Raine”.

About the Author: Patricia Hughes worked with Dorothy Thompson at Birmingham University's Department of Modern History in the UK to decode and translate the coded passages of Anne Lister's vast, detailed journal.
