Literary Lock-In

If you're a writer or a reader, a student or a librarian, an illustrator or journalist or someone who loves books and would like to blether with others who do too, join us for our last Monday-of-the-monthly Literary Dundee Literary Lock-In.

There will be no speechifying and no readings, just an opportunity for Dundee's literary community to mingle and mix and be in the George Orwell. It's free, drop in, and we'll be there for a wee while, awaiting your chat.

Free, drop-in, from 5.30pm
George Orwell Public House


Jeanette Winterson

Wednesday 7th October
7pm: Jeanette Winterson

In The Gap of Time, Jeanette Winterson’s cover version of The Winter’s Tale, we move from London, a city reeling after the 2008 financial crisis, to a storm-ravaged American city called New Bohemia. Her story is one of childhood friendship, money, status, technology and the elliptical nature of time. Written with the energy and wit we would expect of the award-winning writer of Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, Sexing the Cherry and Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?, this is a story of the consuming power of jealousy on the one hand, and redemption and the enduring love of a lost child on the other. It’s a very great treat to welcome the tour de force that is Jeanette Winterson to Dundee.

The Gap in Time is part of the Hogarth Shakespeare project, reimagining Shakespeare for 2016 to mark the 400th anniversary of his death.
