The Centre for Life-Writing Research presents Diaryfest, a day of talks about diaries. Eminent biographers, critics, writers and film-makers will talk about different aspects of diaries, on subjects ranging from Pepys to refugees. Famous, infamous and anonymous diarists provide fascinating human and historical interest: this will be an enjoyable day of learning!
At the end there will be a special opportunity to view the exhibition Dear Diary: A Celebration of Diaries and their Digital Descendants at the Inigo Rooms, East Wing, Somerset House, in the company of diary experts.
Put Diaryfest in your diary for 30 May!
