The novelist visits us for readings and q&a hosted by Katy Shaw
15 Aug 2013
The University of Brighton Faculty of Arts hosted an evening with contemporary British novelist David Peace on 17th May 2011 organised by contemporary literature scholar Katy Shaw.
The event at Grand Parade drew staff and students from across the disciplines and the university as well as members of the public to hear David Peace take part in an in-depth interview with lecturer Katy Shaw, whose scholarly monograph on David Peace was published in December 2010.
David Peace read from some of his most famous novels including GB84 and The Damned United and audience members enjoyed in an interactive q&a session with the author, quizzing him about his novels to date and his future work.
The evening formed part of an ongoing series of author events from our literature team who, alongside their involvement in the literature programme at this year's Brighton Festival, are hosting a series of well-known writers including Jon Ronson, Philip Hensher and Louise Dougherty. These exciting activities foreground Literature at Brighton as a subject on the cutting edge of research and practice.
