Dr Serena Trowbridge, Reader in Victorian Literature at Birmingham City University, UK, is organizing an online reading group for The Earthly Paradise.

Beginning in February 2022, the group will read through Morris’s epic over the course of a year. The Earthly Paradise is organized into twelve books, each corresponding to a month; each month, the group will read the book corresponding to that month, and then meet on Zoom to discuss it. They all also be active on Twitter using the the hashtag #YearofEarthlyParadise and on Facebook.
