Strangers and Strange Worlds: Readers’ Day Saturday 7th July 2007
Hosted by The Reader in association with Archbishop Blanch High School. If you love reading then you'll love the Readers' Day - workshops, panel discussion, readings and a lunch. Guardian journalist Hannah Pool reads from her book, My Father's Daughter and offers advice to would-be journalists whilst children's writer Brian Jacques gives a lively talk about his life as a child in Liverpool and Dr Andrew Hamer humorously discusses the accents of Merseyside and the North West to answer the question; do you speak scouse? Plus, Brian Nellist investigates the law of the jungle in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book and Jane Davis looks at why Lily Bart is a stranger in her own world in Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth.
