There was very well-written article in the Yorkshire Post on Saturday about a collection event we’re holding on Wednesday about popular fiction in World War I.
The journalist, Steve McClarence, let us (me, Chris Hopkins and George Simmers) ramble on (in the way that academics will) for at least an hour and then wrote a concise and intelligent article – I don’t know how he does it.
There are still places available at the event on Wednesday 22nd October at 4pm. We’re going to be talking about some of the big sellers of World War 1: Red Horizon by Patrick Macgill, Lad With Wings by Berta Ruck and Christine and Christopher and Columbus by Elizabeth von Arnim. The programme is attached. Oct 14 WW1 Fiction Flyer
