Michael Greaney at 'The Day of the Dead of Night'

Date: 21 October 2013

Dr Michael Greaney will be speaking on 'Literature and the Art of Insomnia' from 4pm on Saturday 2nd November, as part of the Bluecoat's 'Day of the Dead of Night'.

This event, which takes place from 11am on 2nd November to 3am on Sunday 3rd November, is a "nocturnally-themed marathon during the exhibition 3am: Wonder, Paranoia and the Restless Night, including talks, readings, family activities, tours, stargazing, live music, films, midnight snacks and a DJ set".

Michael's talk will look at why so many heroes and heroines in literature are affected by insomnia, and asks why some writers have convinced themselves that insomnia can be a valuable or even desirable condition.
