Annual Wordsworth Lecture: Edgelands Reading

Date: 29 February 2012 Time: 5.00 pm

Venue: Peter Scott Gallery

This year's Annual Wordsworth Lecture, hosted by the Department of English and Creative Writing, will consist of a reading from Edgelands by Paul Farley and Michael Symmons Roberts, followed by a question and answer session led by David Cooper (Department of History).

Edgelands, by Paul Farley and Michael Symmons Roberts, is their exploration of overlooked landscapes; the business parks, golf ranges, retail areas and wastelands of Northern England. To read a review and see a video clip of Paul and Michael discussing their inspiration for the book, please follow the link below.

The lecture will also be the formal launch of a new Collaborative Agreement between the Department's Wordsworth Centre and The Wordsworth Trust, so the Directors of both will also say a few words about this venture.

The event takes place from 5pm on Wednesday 29th February in the Peter Scott Gallery, and will be followed by a wine reception.

All welcome
