Retelling a Classic Text

March 31, 2016 @ 6:30 PM - 10:30 PM

From Clueless to the BBC’s War and Peace, literary masterpieces have been gracing the pages, stages and screens for decades. But what does a classic retelling have to do with us? Four speakers from different publishers will be discussing literary adaptations from an editorial and publicity point of view – what it means for literature and the publishing industry. Is it time to hop on the bandwagon, or are adaptations a nightmare to behold?

Join us at 6.30pm for a discussion about the joys and tribulations of literary adaptations.
