This event is part of Durham County Council’s Durham Book Festival (5 – 13 October) programme, produced by New Writing North, which takes place in Durham city annually in October. Events are held all over Durham City and County Durham.
Life of Breath researchers will delve into a wide range of project topics, from the social and political history of tobacco, to the imagery of breath invoked by Chaucer, Shakespeare, and the Black Mountain poets. Come and see a display of delights – including material from Palace Green Library’s collections, combined with music and recordings – that will take your breath away.
