Following the sell-out success of the Paul Nash talk delivered at the Lit & Phil on September 27th, the Library has scheduled a repeat performance on Wednesday January 10th at 6.00 pm. Booking is now open, via the Lit & Phil, and seats are selling surprisingly quickly, so contact then now to ensure you get a place!
Gail-Nina Anderson's art lectures at Newcastle's Literary and Philosophical Society continue in the autumn with a triad of lectures on Victorian Parlour Favourites: Landseer's Monarch of the Glen, Yeames' And When Did You Last See Your Father? and Millais' Bubbles. What was the appeal of these paintings for the Voctorians - and what can they offer to the modern viewer? See the Talks and Lectures page for more details.
Autumn also brings a new series of talks in the atmospheric setting of Newcastle's Castle. Although these are more folklore-based than the talks Gail-Nina gives at the Lit & Phil, all these lectures are illustrated throughout and approach their topics via visual imagery. See what is coming up on the Talks page - or for a full list of events, not all of which feature Gail-Nina, visit the Castle's What's On listings.
Gail-Nina will also be participating in the Books on Tyne festival. On Saturday 25th November she will be in conversation with actor and crime novelist Hugh Fraser, and on 3rd December with actor turned novelist George Costigan. Why, yes, there might be a pattern emerging here...
