Explore the Golding archive!

As part of the Exeter Literary Festival, Professor Tim Kendall is offering visitors a unique opportunity to explore the University of Exeter Library’s Special Collections. The collections include materials relating to a number of writers, including Agatha Christie, Ted Hughes, Rebecca du Maurier, and William Golding. Undoubtedly the most exciting item is Golding’s original manuscript of Lord of the Flies, and Kendall will be discussing the development of this novel, from manuscript to publication.

Thursday 7th November, 10am and 11.45 am, University of Exeter Old Library. Tickets available now!
