I am now a proud member of the J.B. Priestley Society. Indeed I have been invited to be one of the two speakers at this year’s JBPS Annual Lecture. This will take place on Saturday October 31 2015 at Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road E1. My fellow speaker will be Dr Katy Price. I Have agreed to speak on the J.B. Priestley “time plays” and to give presentation on my research into the letters that Priestley received in the early 1960’s after his appearance on British television. As some if you will know that JBP’s son, Tom, allowed me access to his Father’s archives at Cambridge University Library a few years ago. I am still hopeful that I will be able to convince a publisher that this research will make a fantastic book …. I am hopeful that some London-based literary itladians will be able to get along to this open event …. It promises to be a great afternoon …..
I am sure that many of you will have seen this short feature that was made by the National Theatre before my appearance there a few years back …. If not you may find it of interest: “https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hY0avkUvl1Q“
