For the autumn gathering and AGM we will return to St Laurence’s Parish Centre, 23 Church Street, Church Stretton, Shropshire SY6 6DQ. Church Stretton, Mary Webb’s Shepwardine is the perfect setting for a Mary Webb gathering. It’s easy to see how she drew inspiration from this evocative landscape.

    I’d love to enjoy ur meeting but since my English is the one of a French guy long ago untrained speaking and listening, I’m a bit afraid to be lost…in translation; I’m discovering Mary Webb’s huge talent, thru reading her Precious bane, French version. Great, no need to say! My question: any other M.W’s novel in French? Many Thanks for let me know!

      Bonjour Philippe
      Thank you for your interesting message and I am pleased that you are enjoying the French version of Precious Bane (Sarn). Several of Mary Webb’s works have been translated into several languages as well as French, although you may need to seek them out. La Renarde / Gone to Earth, Vigilante Armure/ Armour Wherein he Trusted, Le Poids Des Ombres/ The House in Dormer Forest, Sept Pour un Secret/ Seven for a Secret.
      Good luck with finding these and I hope you enjoy reading them.
      With all good wishes
