About the Event

Grab a free coffee and join our fun reading group with a difference! After proving so popular at our last two festivals, Dr Shaf Towheed from The Open University returns to lead a light-hearted discussion on how authors write about conflict. The event will focus on literature about the Troubles, with two extracts from award winning books produced by local authors Anna Burns and Tony Macaulay, followed by short extracts on writing about WW2 and contemporary conflict. With some reading aloud by the lecturers and volunteers, there will be the opportunity for comments and questions from participants at the end, when you will be welcome to share your thoughts and dive into the intricacies of the text. No previous knowledge is required as this is an informal, relaxed event where you will be made very welcome over a cuppa!

This event will be delivered by Dr Shafquat Towheed,  Senior Lecturer in English at The Open University.

Suitable for ages 18+

Delivered as part of The Imagine Festival of Politics and Ideas:
