Imagination and interpretation: Writing science into fiction

Speakers: Pat Barker CBE, Philip Sington

Join Pat Barker CBE and Philip Sington in a discussion about representing  
scientists and science in contemporary fiction. Both authors have  
imaginatively used the archives of early 20th century scientists as the  
basis for major works of fiction. They will reveal what attracted them to  
these historical sources in particular, and discuss the pleasures and  
pitfalls of interpreting modern science in fictional worlds.

The event is free and all are welcome to attend. No ticket or advance  
booking is required - doors will open at 5.30pm and seats will be allocated  
on a first-come-first-served basis.
