A Yorkshire Read: A Kestrel for a Knave

Artwork Slide

Fri, 18 October 5:00pm

Following last year’s popular outloud reading of Frankenstein, we continue the tradition with Barry Hines’s classic book A Kestrel for a Knave. Written in 1968 the book continues to reach new generations with its powerful story of class and survival in a tough world. Join us for a reading of the text from beginning to end with changing readers. Listeners can drop in at any time and stay for a chapter or the whole book! 

If you would like to read out loud with us please get in touch with Sara on s.c.unwin@sheffield.ac.uk  Sara will get in touch with you to arrange a slot.

The reading will run from 5pm to approximately 9.30pm.

Please note anyone aged under 18 years is only allowed in the venue until 9pm.
