Strangeness & Charm – the fundamental particles of narrative

Award-winning author Philip Pullman explores the art and science of writing

Award-winning author Philip Pullman will deliver a Public Lecture on Friday 10 November at Bangor University. (6.00pm, Main Arts Lecture Theatre).

The ‘Whitbread Book of the Year’ winner will lecture on “Strangeness & Charm – the fundamental particles of narrative”, which will explore the art and science of writing.

Philip Pullman is taking a break from both writing and filming to visit the University, where he is an Honorary Fellow. Filming began recently of his most famous work – the trilogy His Dark Materials – which promises to be a blockbuster which stars Nicole Kidman as Mrs Coulter, Dakota Blue Richards as Lyra and Tom Courtenay as Forder Corm. Another of his works, one of the Sally Lockhart stories, is being filmed for BBC Television with Billie Piper in the lead role.

Dr David Roberts, Registrar of the University, said: “We are delighted to welcome back Philip Pullman to the University. He is a brilliant writer, but also an inspiring lecturer who is passionate about education. This is a unique opportunity to hear a leading author explain his work.”

The lecture is free of charge, but is already attracting huge interest, and those planning to attend are advised to arrive early.
