Hello, I’m glad you’re here …
I’m so glad you came to one of my literary talks and now I’m glad you’re here.
I love to welcome new friends with the gift of one of my video talks. See below for how to receive yours.
Together my subscribers and I explore the world of great literature, delving into the lives of extraordinary writers, both past and present, visiting their homelands and houses, and reading their books.
In my free monthly email, Notes from A Book Addict, I’ll take you on a journey through great books and discuss what interests me in literature today. You’ll hear about important anniversaries, receive book recommendations, discover the magic of a poem every month, find out about films and TV programmes based on classic works, and much, much more.
All this in just one email on the first day of each month.
Every new subscriber will receive a complimentary video talk. Your confirmation email tells you how to claim it, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
Anybody could sit down and read the books that I discuss. But have you thought about the story behind the book? Or how the author came to write the book? I’ll help you analyse the themes, consider the various characters and their motivations, and give you links for further explorations … And you’ll be entertained while you learn.
Please have a good look around my website, you’ll find lots to explore. Here are some places to start:
Susannah’s Newsletters are excellent – the best that is available on the Internet as far as I am concerned.
Oh, how I love the wit and coziness of your newsletters. They are stories in themselves which I love to read over and over.
Your newsletters are the only time I read poetry and your selections are consistently enjoyable. Thank you for this beauty.
I’m 76 years old now … and a relatively new “Notes…Addict” reader. Thank you for what you do; you are a JOY, Susannah!
I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I have enjoyed your latest Notes from a Book Addict! So many thanks for your wonderful communication, it really always makes my day!
Thank you Susannah, I love learning from you.
Thanks for your lecture series on the 4 English trailblazers, I have now caught up with all four of them. Even though I had a fair bit of prior knowledge of all except Florence Nightingale, I enjoyed your lectures very much, there were so many lovely pictures and unexpected sidelights that I was very well entertained. You really brought out how these four brilliant misfits made a difference to English culture!
I would have loved to have taken part in the actual lectures, but 5 pm on a weekday does not work for me, unfortunately, so I was pleased to be able to catch the lectures later. I look forward to further lectures in the future.
I absolutely love receiving your programs!
I just wanted to thank you for your March Trailblazers series.
Such interesting and diverse lives and the discovery of all those quirky facts gave a full picture of the personalities behind the famous personas.
As the ladies say, “It’s not easy”. What an understatement!
Thank you for your delightful Notes From a Book Addict they make my day.
Thank you I thoroughly enjoyed the refresher on Florence. A great woman. Today we would no doubt diagnose her as having a mental illness. In my experience people who are so exceptional, such creative thinkers, so different from their peers as Florence was could be bi-polar. Her debilitating illnesses would have exacerbated this. So much of what I learned as a nurse came directly from her teachings.
All the stats we continually collected also came from her.
I really enjoyed this talk, Susannah. Today I used notes I took from this Trailblazers series to complete 3 hours of the 100 hours of Professional Learning I must do to be able to continue casual teaching!
