Join us for a special BookTalk event focused on Tony Jordan’s television series Dickensian, a mashup based on Charles Dickens’s immortal Victorian novels. Prof. Holly Furneaux, the academic adviser to the series, will be in discussion with Dr Ruth McElroy, a specialist in broadcast media and adaptation.
A review from Siriol McAvoy of our last BookTalk event about David Jones’ In Parenthesis, which took place on 11th October 2016, to whet some appetites on the eve of our next event.
Although Cardiff BookTalk is focussing on his writing in In Parenthesis, David Jones was also a talented visual artist. This was the subject of a recent exhibition at Cardiff University’s Special Collections and Archives: https://scolarcardiff.wordpress.com/2016/05/09/exhibition-david-jones-1895-1974/ It is also discussed brilliantly by Fiona MacCarthy in the following article: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2015/oct/10/soldier-poet-painter-david-jones-britains-outsider
