The Oxford University Press and Complete Works of Evelyn Waugh project have announced a virtual book launch for the publication of Helena. The book (volume 11 of the Complete Works) will be published next month in the UK, with North American publication to follow in January 2021. Here’s the text of the announcement:
The launch will feature a talk by Alexander Waugh, Evelyn’s grandson and General Editor of the series, and a Q&A with Helena’s editor, Professor Sara Haslam. We will hear also from other editors in this landmark series as well as, we hope, from Waugh himself in a recorded reading of what he called his best book.
Members of the Evelyn Waugh Society are invited to attend via zoom.com. The book launch is scheduled for 6-8pm GMT on Wednesday 11 November 2020. That would be midday/late morning in North American time zones. Portions of the book launch will be posted on the internet afterwards for those unable to attend on zoom.com. Details for joining the book launch will be provided separately.
