Monday Night Fiction to feature “Lady Audley’s Secret”

"Lady Audley's Secret" Book Cover

Schreiner University’s Monday Night Fiction series will discuss “Lady Audley’s Secret” by Mary Braddon at 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 9, in the Scarle-Philips Room in the William Logan Library on the Schreiner campus. Dr. David Mulry, associate professor of English at Schreiner, will be the discussion leader.

“Lady Audley’s Secret” was originally published in three volumes in 1862.

“Mary Braddon was a celebrated Victorian sensation novelist,” Mulry said, “as popular as Dickens in her time.”

It is the story of protagonist Robert Audley’s investigation into the disappearance of a friend and his attempts to discover the truth about his uncle’s wife, Lucy Audley. The book has provided the story for three silent movies, in 1912, 1915 and 1920, and a British television program in 2000. A stage version was produced off-Broadway in 1972.

Monday Night Fiction is sponsored by Schreiner’s Center for Innovative Learning. For more information about this or any other Schreiner University humanities event, contact Martha York at the Center for Innovative Learning, (830) 792-7352.
