Homes of the Bloomsbury Group – Nino Strachey

Friday 7th June 2pm

Virginia Woolf famously concluded, ‘A woman must have money and a room of her own to write fiction.’ Nino Strachey, National Trust Head of Research and herself descended from a family at the heart of the Bloomsbury Group, explores the homes of Virginia Woolf, her lover Vita Sackville-West, and Vita’s first cousin Eddy – the man who stood between Vita and Knole, the house she loved but could not inherit. In her book Rooms of their Own Nino brings together stories of love, desire and intimacy, with vivid accounts of the settings in which they took place, and offers fresh insights into the complicated interlocking lives of the Bloomsbury Group.
