Dulwich Literary Festival 2019

Welcome to this year’s Dulwich Literary Festival. We have a truly wonderful line-up of speakers & we hope that there is something in the programme that catches your eye – whether it’s Natalie Haynes’s feminist retelling of the story of Troy, Emma Smith’s insightful & innovative take on Shakespeare, or Lara Maiklem’s tales of ‘mudlarking’ in the Thames. Or come along to listen to the brilliant novelists Louise Doughty & Howard Jacobson talk about their work. For kids, we have a fun-filled event with the fabulous Konnie Huq. Finally, to close the Festival, we are honoured to have Jung Chang with us, speaking about the Soong sisters, three extraordinary women who helped shape twentieth-century China.

We hope to see you there,

In 2019 the College celebrates its quatercentenary with a programme of special events and activities, several of which will be open to the public; you can find more about the College by visiting www.dulwich.org.uk.
