Our English Events newsletter for October 2013 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.
October sees the return of Durham Book Festival, a dynamic mix of leading writers and speakers, home-grown talent and new commissions from writers, filmmakers and musicians. Several events are organised in collaboration with Durham University, including poetry readings through the Centre for Poetry and Poetics, and talks on psychology and literature related to the Hearing the Voice project. For the complete programme, visit the Festival website: www.durhambookfestival.com.
Highlights at Durham University this month include the final lecture of the Late Summer Lecture Series, and the return of our regular staff and student postgraduate seminars and the Inventions of the Text seminar series. On 30th October the annual history of the book lecture closes the successful Lindisfarne Gospels exhibition.
Elsewhere, the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival comes to the Sage Gateshead at the end of October, with numerous thinkers and writers exploring how literature can contribute to this year’s theme of “Who’s in Control?”
