Literary biographer Paula Byrne will lecture at the Oxfordshire Museum in Woodstock on the subject of her book Mad World: Evelyn Waugh and the Secrets of Brideshead (2009).
The lecture, sponsored by the Woodstock Literature Society, is scheduled for Saturday, 24 October at 3pm (admission £6 adults, under 18 free). Byrne has presented at two Evelyn Waugh conferences, most recently in Leicester earlier this year where she spoke about her upcoming biography of Kathleen Kennedy, sister of JFK. Her topic was Kathleen’s little-known friendship with Evelyn Waugh. See video here.
