Keepers of the Flame: Celebrating Mick Imlah’s archival legacy
In celebration of the Royal Society of Literature’s 200th anniversary, the Friends of the Bodleian are delighted to host this special event with writer and poet Alan Hollinghurst. Hollinghurst leads an illustrated exploration of the archive of Mick Imlah, the Scottish poet and editor, whose archive is held by the Bodleian.
The evening includes a discussion of the future of the preservation of literary papers with Alan Hollinghurst, Hermione Lee and Mark Ford.
This event will be followed by a drinks reception.
The Friends of the Bodleian and Garsington Opera host a special evening of music in the Bodleian Library’s Convocation House. Returning after an enormously successful performance in February 2019, singers from Garsington Opera will present excerpts from their 2020 Season.
