Leeds Library Festival The Ransome Lecture

 

 

 

Lively Leeds is where city native Arthur Ransome was born in 1884 at 6, Ash Grove.

 

One reason to visit is the Library Festival which is from 3rd – 17th February 2018.

Among the performances, workshops and author events on 16th February  is a  lunchtime talk titled Wilde Ransomed which will uncover a literary legacy for which Ransome remains uncredited  and will include the un-told story of Oscar Wilde and Alfred Douglas, a tale  lost in scandal.  Don’t miss it!

The talk will be accompanied by two films.
