Close Read: Stuart Kelly on Chesteron, Peake and Powys

From C S Lewis to Philip Pullman, writers have used fantasy to explore religion. This session explores three lesser-known examples, The Man Who Was Thursday by G K Chesterton, Mr Weston’s Good Wine by T F Powys and Mr Pye by Mervyn Peake. Why has Harold Pye been sent to the island of Sark? What is the difference between Weston’s light and dark wine? And can Syme fathom who Sunday is? Join Stuart Kelly for an open discussion suitable for those who know Powys, Peake or Chesteron, and new readers.
