To tie in with the Muriel Spark centenary, the Susan Manning Memorial Lecture 2018 will be an exploration of ‘Spark and her voices’ by Janice Galloway, the author of award-winning novels, short stories and books of non-fiction, including Clara, This is Not About Me, All Made Up and The Trick is to Keep Breathing. Her collaborative work includes a range of texts for typographers, visual artists, sculptors, musicians and videographers including Sally Beamish, Calum Colvin and Anne Bevan. Her latest book, Jellyfish, is a collection of short stories inspired by the separate but connected worlds of sex and child-rearing. The paperback edition of Jellyfish will be published by Granta in 2018.
