Exploring Fairytales with Jen Campbell and Sara Maitland

14th October 2017, 13:00 to 14:10, Palace Green Libray, Durham

Durham Book Festival event
To mark the opening of Palace Green Library’s exhibition, Between Worlds: Folklore and Fairy Tales from Northern Britain, we bring together writers Jen Campbell and Sara Maitland to talk about the power of fairy tales.
Chaired by Durham University's Dr. Jamie Tehrani.

Jen Campbell’s new book The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night is a collection of twelve haunting stories; modern fairy tales brimming with magic, outsiders and lost souls. In Gossip from the Forest Sara Maitland suggests that fairy tales are one of our earliest and most vital cultural forms, and forests one of our most ancient landscapes.
