Alan Taylor on the Prime of Miss Jean Brodie at Edinburgh International Book Festival

August 24, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

£12 – £15

Literary editor Alan Taylor was a friend of Muriel Spark and has become something of an aficionado on her life and work. Join him to explore the best known of her novels, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Short and bittersweet, the tale of the downfall of a headstrong Scottish schoolmistress in 1930s Edinburgh is a masterpiece of narrative fiction. Expect an open discussion from the start; you can read the book ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.

Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival’s Muriel Spark 100 series of events – tickets available here.

Accessibility: All EIBF events offer a range of facilities for visitors with access requirements – more information here.
