Great Writers Inspire at Home: Editors and contributors, The Cambridge Hist...
Thu 15 June 2017, 17:00 – 19:00 BST
This workshop series, hosted jointly by the Oxford English Faculty and TORCH and supported by the OUP John Fell Fund, brings a number of contemporary British writers into conversation with readers to discuss how literature shapes our perceptions of the world today and our identities within it. In the first half of each workshop, readers will be able to offer responses to their experiences of reading the book of the week; in the second, the author will give a reading and engage in conversation with the audience.
All are welcome. These sessions will be recorded for podcasting.
