with author James Meek + other performers TBC
Don’t miss this exclusive event featuring acclaimed Scottish author James Meek and two actors reading dialogue from his extraordinary new novel To Calais, in Ordinary Time.
A novel about courage, love and identity set in medieval England with the ever-present threat of the Black Death. On the road to Calais, a gentlewoman, a proctor and a ploughman (each on very different journeys) meet. Language is a very important part of this book and this event will portray just how carefully rendered the dialogue is. It will also be lots of fun!
To Calais, In Ordinary Time by James Meek (Canongate, 2019)
