A belated happy birthday to Mrs. Dalloway. The novel often described as Virginia Woolf’s most accessible turned 85 on May 14 and is still going strong.

The LA Times blog Jacket Copy celebrated that fact with a piece about the book that quotes Woolf scholar, Anne Fernald, who coordinated last year’s Woolf conference, Woolf and the City, held at Fordham University in New York City.

Fernham is on research leave from her teaching position at Fordham and is working on the Cambridge University Press edition of Mrs. Dalloway. She spends some of her time in the Wertheim Study at the New York Public Library and contributed to Approaches to Teaching Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway.

Meanwhile, readers still enjoy Mrs. Dalloway, and dramatists continue to take new approaches to the novel. Red Bull Theater will present a new play workshop of Septimus and Clarissa, by Ellen McLaughlin, based on Woolf’s novel, on June 25 and 26 at the Theater at St. Clement’s, 423 West 46th St. in New York City.
