ADFAS Narrabri – “And so to bed…” The Diary of Samuel Pepys
March 1 @ 7:00 pm
The diary of Samuel Pepys has long been considered the greatest diary in the English language. Historians have found it invaluable, but it is also a superb work of literature. Founder of the modern English navy, President of the Royal Society, Member of Parliament, talented musician, composer and lover of numerous women, Samuel Pepys was all of these, but it is this candid diary that has ensured he remains a household name centuries after his death. “And so to bed …”, this talk on Pepys tells of the Plague and the Great Fire, constant womanising, theatre-going and dinners. Susannah loves to share her enthusiasm for this most human and delightful of diarists.
Susannah Fullerton has been passionate about literature for as long as she can remember. She currently teaches literature courses in Sydney and lectures at the State Library of NSW and the Art Gallery of NSW.
