Spring Talk – Alan Sillitoe
March 6 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In 1958 Saturday Night and Sunday Morning became the first Pan paperback to sell a million copies thanks to the antics of hard drinking, womanising anti-hero Arthur Seaton. Yet Seaton is more than just your average drunk. He’s belligerent and hedonistic, with a healthy scepticism of all forms of authority. Our speaker is James Walker, a lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, and author of the digital project ‘Sillitoe Trail’. He will explore the enduring relevance of this definitive Nottingham novel and why Nottingham desperately needs a modern-day Arthur Seaton. The talk coincides with the 90th anniversary of the birth of Alan Sillitoe, who was born 4 March 1928.
Doors/bar open from 7pm
All are welcome and please bring your friends. The charge for the individual talks is £3 for NPRA members, £4 for non members.
