The Letters Page Vol 4 Launch interview with Jon McGregor
From Emma Rayner
The award-winning novelist and screenwriter Roddy Doyle will be talking about his life and work at a ‘literary cabaret’ event to launch the latest edition of The Letters Page – an unusual journal of creative writing produced at the University of Nottingham.
Roddy Doyle will be the star guest of the city’s own famous novelist Jon McGregor. Jon edits the journal as part of his role as Professor of Creative Writing in the School of English. The Letters Page is an imaginatively-designed ‘book in a box’ containing a wide variety of stories, poems, memoir, travelogue and criticism – all in the form of handwritten letters from contributors all over the world.
The popular Nottingham jazz venue, Peggy’s Skylight in George Street, will be hosting the event from 6pm onwards on Tuesday 15th October 2019. Roddy Doyle will be on stage at 8pm in conversation with Jon McGregor about his writing career and will be reading from his latest work.
