Literature Week 2017 - Adaptations and Transformations

Monday 15 May - Sunday 21 May 2017

Stories are regularly re-told, adapted to another medium, or completely transformed. From literary spin-offs of The Famous Five, to stage adaptations of Matilda, and Pride and Prejudice inspired food art, these new offerings bring characters and plots to a wider audience, reflecting changing times and tastes. Yet what does each new ‘storyteller’ owe to the original text and its author? And can their re-inventions inspire fresh appreciation of old favourites? Join us this May as we explore the evolution of literature across time, culture, language and form.
