Dear Woolfians,
<div><br>
</div>
<div>I was having lunch with a colleague in political science last week who's writing a book on political ethics which will include a chapter on Woolf.  She asked me if I knew whether or not Simone de Beauvoir read Woolf or referenced her directly,
 and my first thought was ‘I’ve read the answer to that on the Woolf lists’!  But I didn’t want to pass off any half remembered knowledge without reaching out to the community and getting my facts right.  If anyone could help me out, that’d be wonderful. Also,
 of course, if you know of scholarship putting the two in dialogue.</div>
<div><br>

<div>Thanks</div>
