Vote for the November 2009 Circuit

Based on some of your suggestions and the committee’s deliberations, we’ve narrowed down the November 2009 Circuit to one of these excellent Victorian writers. The links below go to Wikipedia if you’d like further information.

(A note on the suggestions: For this tour, we worked with those that we’ve received from the various comments circulating about this project. Please give more suggestions via the Suggest a Tour link so we’ll have more to work with for next tour!)

The survey will be open until Sunday, 27 September 2009 11:59 p.m. CST.

Wilkie Collins (1824-1889) wrote in a variety of genres (novels, short stories, plays, and non-fiction) but is best known for The Woman in White, a sensation novel, and The Moonstone, considered the first English detective mystery.

Under the pen name George Eliot (1819-1880), Mary Anne Evans wrote novels and poetry and is best known for Middlemarch and Silas Marner.

Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865) wrote novels, short stories, and a biography of Charlotte Bronte, with North and South as possibly her best known novel.

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) wrote primarily novels with a sprinkling of nonfiction, with the novels in his Chronicles of Barsetshire the best known.

Please let us know which author you’d like to see for the tour! Thanks for giving your input.

ETA: This survey is now closed.
