Reading as Alchemy
Wednesday 12th July 18:30 - 20:30 at London - Gower Street
Literary fiction, at its best, taps in to poetry's magic to release significance that goes beyond dictionary definitions. As Virginia Woolf said, "Words don't live in dictionaries, they live in the mind." They live in the body too and literary fiction can unlock some of their visceral qualities through rhythm and internal resonances.
Join novelists Roopa Farooki, Miranda Gold, Alice Jolly, Clare Morgan and Charles Palliser this evening for a discussion chaired by Jacqui Lofthouse, to explore ideas about how meaning takes shape between reader and writer and how layers of meaning can only unfold by staying on the page.
