Ouse Valley Branch: Lunch & Talk 'MARK RUTHERFORD’S PEOPLE'

Loading Events

DR MARK CREESE

English teacher, author, Chairman of the Rutherford Society.

MARK RUTHERFORD’S PEOPLE

Hale White was born in Bedford in 1831 and educated at Bedford Modern School. A nonconformist in religion and a civil servant and journalist. For his novels he assumed the pseudonym, Mark Rutherford. Dr Crees’s presentation will partly be a talk on Rutherford’s life and partly a dramatic reading of extracts from his novels to give a flavour of Rutherford’s writing.    The characters in the novels are full of doubts and questions and private sorrows, for example, the trainee preacher who questions his faith. Rutherford: a human, sensitive writer.
