Literary Hertfordshire is a collaborative project between the University of Hertfordshire and Hertfordshire County Council. The aim is to explore the county's rich literary heritage, providing snapshots of past and present Hertfordshire authors and build a place for local communities to discover their literary heritage.
Did you know for example that Pride and Prejudice was set in Hertfordshire or that Charles Dickens reported on the destruction of the west wing of Hatfield House when he was a reporter for the Morning Chronicle in 1835? Hertfordshire has many literary connections. See below for just some of the authors covered to date.
This area of the Herts Memories website is currently under development. Please email us at either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you have any queries or suggestions for authors you would like to see here.
