Discover some of the finest cats in world literature
Judith Robinson and Scott Pack take you on a tour of world literature in the company of some rather splendid cats.
Join us for a celebration of world literature as our hosts recommend, discuss and enthuse about 10 works of literature from around the globe, all of which feature feline characters of note.
Although the final selection remains secret until the night itself, we can guarantee a stopover on every continent (except, perhaps, Antarctica) and that you'll leave with at least a couple of additions to your 'To Be Read' pile.
Celebrating the finest literature in translation, and some of the finest cats in fiction, this promises to be a hugely enjoyable evening and attendees are encouraged to come with their own recommendations of great literary cats.
Scott Pack is a writer and publisher who has spent the best part of two decades in the book world. He has, somewhat by accident, published work by both J K Rowling and Haruki Murakami but spends most of his time championing lesser-known and neglected authors.
Judith Robinson programmed and delivered literature and music festivals and events for over 10 years, first for the Cheltenham Literature Festival, followed by the British Council and most recently for Bath Festivals. She is now a lecturer at Bath Spa University, teaching on the festivals and events sector amongst other things. Books have always been and remain her great passion, and she continues to chair and take part in literature events.
Together, Judith and Scott have hosted various Around the World in 10 Books events but this is the first one to feature cats.
