Spirit of '47
If you had to pick one writer to sum up the inventive spirit of the post-war transatlantic era, you could hardly do better than Paul Auster. Ever since he burst onto the scene with his New York Trilogy of interconnected novels, Auster has remained a major figure in world literature. He joins us for this keynote event to discuss his life and work, as part of a series, Spirit of '47, celebrating Edinburgh's 70th anniversary as a festival city. Presented in partnership with the Edinburgh International Festival and the British Council.
Tickets are on sale for this event from Weds 14 June and can only be booked through the Edinburgh International Festival's Hub Tickets at www.eif.co.uk or tel 0131 473 2000.
