Spake: in conversation with Roy McFarlane, Lisa Blower and Urszula Clark

Wednesday 5th February 18:00 - 19:00 at Birmingham

Join us for an evening with Roy McFarlane, Lisa Blower and Urszula Clark as we discuss the West Midlands dialect, as well as the prejudices, challenges and interesting stories which often accompany it – all of which is explored in Spake: Dialect and Voices from the West Midlands.

After the sell-out book launch of Spake at Birmingham Literature Festival 2019 with Paul McDonald and Rupinder Kaur, it seemed that there was much more to discuss concerning West Midlands voices, experiences, and wider attitudes towards regional accents. So, we are back with another event alongside some wonderful contributors of Spake to delve deeper into the enigma that is the West Midlands accent.

This event will be chaired by Jonathan Davidson.

Copies of Spake will be available to purchase at the event.
