“There is a kind of turn in our sentences which is alike but that is because we are worms of the same family.”

(Katherine Mansfield)

The Katherine Mansfield Society and the International Elizabeth von Arnim Society are delighted to announce their first joint conference.

This very special event will take place on 19 & 20 July 2017 at the Huntington Library, San Marino, California.

As one of the world’s great research libraries, the Huntington also holds the papers of Elizabeth von Arnim and early editions of Katherine Mansfield’s stories. The library is situated amidst stunning gardens well worth a visit on their own.
