Our English Events newsletter for October 2012 is now available. The newsletter lists a wide variety of literature-related events taking place at Durham University and across the wider North East region.
Highlights at Durham University this month include two continuing lecture series – Outrageously Modern! and Late Summer Lectures – and the start of new programmes of seminars and public lectures sponsored by various research institutes, including the Institute of Advanced Study and the Institute of Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
Elsewhere, Durham Book Festival runs from 13th to 30th October, with authors including Pat Barker, Cressida Cowell, Carol Ann Duffy, PD James, Ben Miller, Kate Mosse, Roger McGough, Ian Rankin, Nick Robinson and Jack Straw. The festival will also feature the premiere of Rapunzel by balletLORENT, a new version of the classic BrothersGrimm fairytale re-written for the modern age by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, and a new play by Margaret Wilkinson, Blue Boy.
