We’ll be holding our AGM at the University
of Leicester on Saturday 19 November, 1-3pm, Attenborough Seminar Room 001 (ground floor of the Attenborough Seminar Block). A campus map can
be found here: https://www.le.ac.uk/maps/

All members are warmly welcome to attend. As part of the meeting, we’ll hold elections for the executive committee roles of Chair, Fundraising Officer, Membership Secretary, and Ordinary Member. Many thanks to members who are standing for these roles – I’ll be in touch with you individually, shortly.

On the same date, you are also invited to an exciting CWWA-sponsored event as part of the Literary Leicester festival, at 6.30pm:

Fay Weldon: In Conversation
Fay Weldon will discuss her latest book, Before the War (2016), with Founder Chair of the Contemporary Women’s Writing Association, Professor Mary Eagleton. They will reflect on changes in the social and literary landscape since the publication of Fay’s first novel, The Fat Woman’s Joke (1967), almost 50 years ago.

This is a free event but please do BOOK your place at the Literary Leicester site to avoid disappointment. Do also look at the whole programme for the festival, taking place from 16-19 November: http://www2.le.ac.uk/institution/literary-leicester
