01 Nov Unlocking the Literary Archive
If you love classic literature, you won’t want to miss this fascinating event taking place at the University of Exeter in partnership with ExeLitFest. Tim Kendall, Professor of English and the Academic Director of Special Collections, will take us on a whistle-stop tour of the University’s literary archives. The tour will explore Daphne du Maurier’s notebooks for Rebecca; Ted Hughes’s long-standing collaboration with the American artist, Leonard Baskin; Agatha Christie’s correspondence with her agent; and William Golding’s development of Lord of the Flies from manuscript to typescript to finished novel. The tour, which lasts approximately 75 minutes, will take place in Old Library Seminar Room A/B, Prince of Wales Road, EX4 4SB (follow signs to the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum).
This special event is free, but places are limited and booking is essential.
