July is a relatively quiet month for literature and book events in the North East, but there’s still enough to make our new listing worth a read.
In particular, those with an interest in medieval literature have three (count them!) conferences to choose from in the region: one on seditious writing, one on the poet John Gower, and one on the representation of the past in the medieval world.
There are also several standalone readings and book talks. Among other things, the Northumbria Summer Speakers Series returns with a talk on flanerie and affect, while Andrew Crumey ponders whether novelists can predict the future as part of the ongoing Time Machines exhibition.
This is just a snapshot of what’s on in the North East this month.
