Event description

Description

After the amazing seminar on fantasy and readers advisory work which was held in 2011, you said that you now wanted to explore history. The planning team have been busy to bring this to you.

The program includes Jesse Blackadder, author, short story writer and freelance journalist, Captain Justin Jones of RAN on the Navy reading list, Martin Mantle is back by popular request, to give us more information about disability in fiction (two minutes was not enough).
