Spring Season Begins With Philip Hoare

The writer Philip Hoare, also a professorial teaching fellow in creative writing at the University of Southampton, is kicking off our first Writers in Conversation event of the Spring 2022 season on Thursday 24 February at 7:30 p.m.

Hoare will be talking about his most recent book, Albert & the Whale: Albrecht Dürer and How Art Imagines Our World, as well as the Derek Jarman exhibition at the John Hansard Gallery, at the MAST Mayflower Studios in Southampton’s cultural quarter. Book your tickets online, as seats are limited.

The book, an exploration of the life, and world of the German artist, was just shortlisted for the £30,000 Rathbones Folio Prize.

Another non-fiction writer will join us on Tuesday 15 March – Julia Ridley Smith, who will talk about her book of essays about mourning her parents, A Sum of Trifles. We will talk to Ridley Smith via Teams, but gather as a group on the Avenue Campus at 6 pm in Lecture Theatre B.

Finally, the novelist Katie Munnik, who is releasing her new book, The Aerealists, in April 2022, will join us after the Easter break, at a time and date to be announced soon.
