Come hear Kirsty Stonell Walker - fierce feminist and avid blogger of *Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood* - discuss her book which allows 50 of the most well known pre-Raphaelite female muses to reclaim their stories from the grave.

Since the early 1800s, muses from classic pre-Raphaelite paintings like Lizzie Siddal (Ophelia) have had their narratives mansplained away by historians and the art crowd. Considered mad, troublemakers, or common, these women were either cast aside or locked away in a lunatic asylum. Kirsty Stonell Walker's book explores previously unseen evidence such as medical records, letters, gravestones, and archives ultimately giving these women a chance to tell their own stories.
