Event description

Description

To mark the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen – the mother of the modern novel – the 2017 Literary Series begins with a discussion on adapting Austen’s novels for the screen and stage. How does one bring to life Austen’s trademark wit and streams of consciousness beyond the page? Our expert panel of speakers will reveal how they have adapted Austen successfully and the challenges they faced along the way.

Speakers:

Paula Byrne, author of The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things, the Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller and BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week.
Professor Janet Todd, Honorary Fellow of Newnham College and Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge, and Professor Emerita, University of Aberdeen.
Anne Pivcevic, Executive Producer, BBC Drama Production.
