Exhibition at The Beaney, High Street, Canterbury. ‘Canterbury’s Aphra Behn (1640-1689): Literature’s best kept secret’

June 8 - August 18

This exhibition celebrates the startling achievements of this daughter of London stage every season for over 50 years and a novella, Oroonoko, the first fiction in English to centre on a rebellion of enslaved Africans. The exhibition traces her story, starting in a world where outspoken women might be punished, via her spying trip to Antwerp in 1666, to her glittering London career in the 1670s and 1680s.
