Orley Farm

We are reading Orley Farm over six Zoom meetings from January - April 2022.

Professor Francis O'Gorman joined us to introduce the novel and is returning in April to conclude our BIG READ.

It is not true that a rose by any other name will smell as sweet. Were it true, I should call this story 'The Great Orley Farm Case'. But who would ask for the ninth number of a serial work burthened with so very uncouth an appellation? Thence, and therefore, — Orley Farm.
