The Manchester Writing School at MMU, Manchester Literature Festival and Steady State Manchester invite you to explore how literature can connect us with the predicaments of our age. Join Clare Dudman (scientist by training and author of three novels including A Place of Meadows and Tall Trees) Rodge Glass (author of three novels including Bring Me the Head of Ryan Giggs and a Somerset Maugham Award-winning biography of Alasdair Gray) and Gregory Norminton (author of four novels including the highly acclaimed Serious Things and creative writing teacher at MMU) to discuss BEACONS, a collection of twenty-one original stories by major UK authors. The stories are inspired by, and will be sold for the benefit of, the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition. More information from Manchester Literature Festival.
