Great Writers Inspire at Home: 'Readers and Readings' (Series Launch)
Thu 27 April 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.

27 April (week 1) – Series launch: ‘Readers and Readings’
The project leaders will introduce the concept of the series, and lead the audience in a discussion of how books come to us (including the politics of publishing in Britain today) and how we come to books (our reading experiences).
