The British Library is hosting a special event called: Heartwood: Telling the Matter of Britain, from 18.30 – 20.00 on Friday, 2 September 2011, in the Conference Centre – Main Auditorium, 96 Euston Road, London.
In his extraordinary books Mythago Wood, Lavondyss and many others, the late Robert Holdstock explored a mythic landscape of this land; using the tools of science fiction and fantasy at timeless depths and earning him acclaim as an heir to Tolkien or Ursula Le Guin. His work will be the starting point for an evening of exploration, discussion and readings with authors Brian Aldiss, Stephen Baxter and Lisa Tuttle, scholar Donald E. Morse (editor of The Mythic Fantasy of Robert Holdstock) and other special guests. The evening will be chaired by Graham Sleight.
Tickets cost £7.50 / £5 concessions and can be purchased online.
