Muriel Spark, Religion and Exile at Edinburgh International Book Festival

August 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

£10 – £12

Muriel Spark described herself as ‘a constitutional exile’ who, though educated in a Presbyterian school and raised observing Jewish rituals, opted to convert to Catholicism. Gabriel Josipovici and Kapka Kassabova, who have written introductions to Spark’s The Mandelbaum Gate and Territorial Rights, consider how she deals with such disparate elements in her fiction. Chaired by Alan Taylor.

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.
