In a quick break from normal service, I thought I’d take a moment to mention the University of Warwick Book Festival, which is taking place at Warwick Arts Centre on Saturday 15th June 2013. Organising the Festival has been my main project this year as Research Fellow at the IAS, and it’s been quite an undertaking (a very interesting one at that!) to work on a large-scale public engagement project. We’ve drawn together authors whose works fit broadly around the theme of history – lots of literature, biography, politics, art, and more – and hope it’ll be a really exciting and varied day for audiences.
Of course the only downside to organising the Festival is that I’ve lined up a day of fascinating speakers that I’m not going to get a chance to see myself! But if you’d like to go to any of the talks then, for a mere £5.50 per event, you can book on the Arts Centre website.
