Close Read: Katherine Rundell on Paddington by Michael Bond

Take a deep dive into the much-loved children’s classic Paddington with acclaimed writer and academic Katherine Rundell. Having arrived illegally by boat from ‘darkest Peru’, Paddington Bear and his friend Mr Gruber (also a refugee) are potent symbols of the flight from war. Expect an open discussion of the imagery and the ethical power of Michael Bond’s work from the start, enjoyable for Paddington fans and newcomers to the books.
