Muriel Spark at 100
Alan Taylor, James Campbell & Ali Smith

Muriel Spark was undoubtedly one of the finest fiction writers of the 20th century. Her novels include The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Mandelbaum Gate and A Far Cry from Kensington.
Joining us to celebrate the 100th anniversary of her birth are Alan Taylor, author of Appointment in Arezzo: A Friendship with Muriel Spark, TLS columnist James Campbell and fellow Spark
enthusiast and festival patron Ali Smith. A literary toast to the life of a vivacious, witty, generous and fiercely intelligent woman.
