A Journal of the plague year

Professor David Roberts of Birmingham City University reads an abridged and dramatised version of this powerful work by the author of Robinson Crusoe.


The guest speaker at this first ESU literary lunch will be Professor David Roberts. It will be held at 12 noon for 12.30 on Friday 26 November in the Dickens Room of the Birmingham & Midland Institute. The topic for the first lunch is Daniel Defoe’s celebrated A Journal of the Plague Year.

Defoe's Journal, first published in 1722, is a groundbreaking work of documentary fiction and perhaps the greatest book ever written about natural disaster. To mark the recent publication of his revised World's Classics edition for Oxford University Press, Professor David Roberts of Birmingham City University reads an abridged and dramatised version of this powerful work by the author of Robinson Crusoe.

Tickets for the event are £27.50, which will include an aperitif, two-course lunch, a glass of wine and coffee.
