On Being Archived: Will Self, Hanif Kureishi and Guests - A Live Screening
Fri 24 March 2017, 19:00 – 20:30 GMT
Will Self reflects on having his archive newly acquired by the British Library. His archive includes drafts of novels, his cartoons, a full hard-drive, family documents and letters received from other writers.
At this event he meets Hanif Kureishi, also archived at the Library, to explore the experience of passing on much of one’s life’s work to the national collection, where it is joining that of Harold Pinter, John Berger, J G Ballard, Joan Bakewell, and many others.
A live screening from the British Library. A Living Knowledge Network event.
