March 10th – 12th Orwell Society commemorations, with friends, in Wigan. Full itinerary.
George Orwell was on the Aragon front in Spain, while his wife Eileen ran the Independent Labour Party office in Barcelona. In Britain Victor Gollancz published The Road To Wigan Pier under his own imprint as a hardback, and as a Left Book Club edition in soft-cover linen.
