A lot of people, when they come to Susannah’s talks, say, “Oh I wish I had had somebody like you teaching me English when I was at school.”
Susannah Fullerton’s talks breathe life into great literature and author’s lives. Her talks are partly to instruct, but also to entertain, so she tells people all the juicy details about the life of the writer and how a particular incident in their lives might have affected what they wrote. Dramatic readings from the novels add authenticity and she includes biographies or critical works to read if people wish to explore that writer further. People come along who just want to learn more about great literature.
Susannah is entertaining while making her guests much more aware of great works from literature; encouraging people to go away and read a lot more.
