About this Event:

At a time of deep unease about the impact of climate change, novelist Gregory Norminton has edited an anthology of short stories on the subject, Beacons. In this event, three contributors to Beacons, all well-known writers in other contexts – David Constantine, Joanne Harris and Jem Poster – come together to give readings from the short stories they contributed and to discuss their work in relation to the environmental issues it addresses.

Constantine, a fellow of The Queen’s College, Oxford, is a poet, novelist and translator, and co-editor of the literary journal Modern Poetry in Translation. Harris is an award-winning writer of many novels including Chocolat, which was made into an Oscar-nominated film, and the more recent Peaches for Monsieur Le Cure and Runelight. Poster is a poet and novelist, academic director of the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival, and former professor and chair of creative writing at Aberystwyth University.

Harris is one of two writers in residence at this year’s festival and will be staying in a Landmark Trust property.
