Saturday 16th October 2021, Alderney’s ‘Literally Gothic’ Festival
August 18, 2021
I am absolutely thrilled to be making a return visit to the beautiful island of Alderney for a one-day special event, a brand new biennial festival Literally Gothic. I will be talking about –
“Devilish plots” and “monstrous aberrations”: Making monsters of man and nature in the 1600’s.
What better time to explore gothic literature than in October, when the dark nights are creeping in. I’ll be in the company of some wonderful authors, who will be talking part on the day – Rosie Garland, Andrew Hurley and Anna Mazzola and the festival will be opened by Xavier Aldana Reyes, who lectures in Gothic Literature at Manchester Metropolitan University.
