War Horses and Radio Astronomy

We were reliably informed that the radio dramatisation of Lit & Phil member David Almond’s book Skellig was broadcast this morning on  Radio4 Extra and will be repeated at 9.15 this evening….which reminds us that Book Club with David (recorded here) will be broadcast on November 4th. Don’t forget.

 As the working week for the library begins to draw to a close (although we still have a concert tonight (Sandi Russell et al), are open until 1pm tomorrow, and have Ann Cleeves and Liz Carling here on Sunday, we begin to consider next week’s diary…….Andy Robertshaw will be here talking about The Making of War Horse (a lecture for schools and a lecture for adults) on Monday, on Tuesday we have a visit from our Honorary President,  Alexander Armstrong (delivering a masterclass to students from Newcastle College, then signing copies of his new book), Gail-Nina Anderson is lecturing on Wednesday at 6pm on M.R. James, and Tony Williams from  Northumbria University will launching his new book that evening, too. Then on Thursday Andrew Fletcher from Newcastle University is lecturing on radio astronomy and last but not least, we have a Brewin Dolphin sponsored event on Friday,  that is another sold-out production with Robert Lloyd Parry  performing two classic M. R.  James ghost stories. And that’s just the events!  We’ve got numerous room bookings and classes going on,  and of course don’t forget the “normal” business of the library itself. In other words – it’s going to be another whirlwind of activity!
