Event details

Does the use of a specific location limit or expand the remit of a text? Is there a ‘real’ York to represent in literature?

Anyone with an interest in York and reading is invited to join a Twitter reading group looking at how York has been used in literature. Group leads Zoe Enstone and Adam Smith of York St John University begin the discussion by talking about some of their favourite York-based texts.

To take part, simply use the Twitter handle #FictionalYork. The session will be led with Tweets from @zensto and @elementaladam.
