About the Event
Guest Curator Max Porter’s first novel Grief Is the Thing with Feathers was published to widespread acclaim in 2015 and adapted into a sold-out stage run starring Cillian Murphy.
This year he launches Lanny, a spellbinding tale that blends a compulsive account of the hunt for a missing child with a fantastical mix of folklore, myth and the voices of an English village. Join him for an immersive performance of the book with the musicians Alula Down.
About the Book
Everyday lives conjure a tapestry of fabulism and domesticity. This village belongs to the people who live in it and to the people who lived in it hundreds of years ago.
