The 2019 Anthony Burgess Lecture: Margaret Drabble
- Thu 10 Oct 2019
- 7:00 pm
For the 2019 Anthony Burgess Lecture, the novelist and biographer Dame Margaret Drabble will present a specially commissioned talk on literary reputations.
Taking Anthony Burgess’s grand, late bid for immortality, Earthly Powers, as a starting point, the lecture will explore how we remember writers and the power of posterity.
Margaret Drabble was born in Sheffield and is the author of 19 novels including A Summer Bird-Cage, The Millstone, The Pure Gold Baby and The Dark Flood Rises. She has also written biographies and screenplays.
This event is presented in partnership with the Manchester Literature Festival.
