Am Mittwoch, dem 24.05.2023, liest Dr. Harry Whitehead (Leicester) aus seinem neuen Roman "White Road". Wir laden ein zur Lesung, einer Diskussion zu "Climate Fiction" und darüber, wie Kunst die Themen der Klimakrise transportieren kann.

Harry is a novelist and associate professor of creative writing at Leicester University, where he directs the Centre for New Writing and the Literary Leicester Festival.

In recent years, Harry Whitehead has grown interested in climate change and the arts. This, combined with longstanding fascinations with the oil business and the polar regions led to his latest novel, White Road. It concerns an offshore oil rig that explodes in the High Arctic just as winter’s setting in, and will be published next year. Come and hear him read from the novel, discuss so-called “climate-fiction”, and how the arts can help broadcast the environmental emergency.
