This year is the centenary of the publication of Katherine Mansfield’s third collection of short stories, The Garden Party and Other Stories. The collection includes some of Mansfield’s best-known and most-loved stories, such as ‘At the Bay’, ‘The Garden Party’ and ‘Miss Brill’. But what about the other twelve?
Current Randell Cottage resident Rose Lu will read ‘The Lady’s Maid’ as part of the Katherine Mansfield House winter series. Local writers are asked to choose one of the lesser-known stories from the collection to read out loud and chat about on a Sunday afternoon. You can read the story in advance and come with your own thoughts and questions, or come along and discover the story for the first time and see what it makes you think and feel in the moment.
