Lunchtime Talk: Alan Bennett and Yorkshire

Wed 15th May 2019
Leeds Central Library, Leodis Room, 3rd Floor, Leeds, LS1 3AB

 In this illustrated talk, Dr Kara McKechnie will explore the work of Alan Bennett and his relationship to his native Yorkshire. As a playwright of many voices, what is special about the Yorkshire characters and places in Bennett's work? How does he portray the Leeds in which he grew up in the 1930s and 40s with changes over the decades? 
There will be time for a Q+A afterwards, where attendees will be able to share their own memories and views on Alan Bennett and his work.
