English Events in April 2015

Our English Events newsletter for April 2015 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. The newsletter will be updated over the coming month as more events are added to external websites.

Highlights at Durham University this month include a talk by the writer Wendy Moore, on the disastrous marriage and triumphant divorce of Mary Eleanor Bowes; a seminar on Yeats and the visual arts; and poetry readings by the laureate Carol Ann Duffy, and our own undergraduate student Sarah Fletcher.

Further afield, there’s a unique opportunity to enjoy some Norse nosh at Blackfriar’s Restaurant in Newcastle, where Eleanor Barraclough will explore the culinary habits of trolls; renowned cultural historian Fiona McCarthy examines the thought and work of William Morris; and there’s a rare chance to hear the poet John Fuller at Newcastle’s Lit and Phil.

This is just a taste of the wide array of events taking place in our region. For full listings and updates, see our newsletter, or find us on Twitter or Facebook.
