The Folio Academy Sessions
Saturday 18 June – Sunday 19 June, British Library Conference Centre, book online: http://www.bl.uk/events/the-folio-academy-sessions
For the third year running, the Folio Prize Foundation and the British Library host some of the world’s finest writers and their guests. Sponsored by The Eccles Centre for American Studies, this year’s line-up includes a range of authors for eight panel discussions including Richard Francis on Utopias, Tracy Chevalier on historical narratives, Caryl Philips on ‘A Place Called Home’, and Roger Roberts on ‘The Authenticity Paradox.’
Over eight sessions each programmed by a different member of the Folio Prize Academy, the weekend will explore how stories have the power to transform us: how they can impact individuals and effect social change. Tickets can be purchased for individual events or day and weekend passes.
