The Southbank book club discuss The Turn of the Screw

September 25, 2013 @ 6:30 pm

Our book club explores The Turn of the Screw by Henry James.

Throughout 2013 we read books to tie in with Southbank Centre’s year-long festival on 20th-century culture and music, The Rest Is Noise. Please read the book in advance of the event and bring a copy with you on the evening.

September marks Benjamin Britten’s centenary, making it the perfect time to consider the strange and sinister novella on which one of Britten’s most celebrated operas was based.

Henry James’s imagination weaves the lives of two children, a governess in love with her employer, and a sprawling country house into an exquisitely spine-tingling story.

Please note, this free event requires a ticket. Please book your free ticket online, by phone or in person (no fees apply).

The Southbank Centre Book Clubs are extremely popular and places are limited, so please only book a ticket if you are certain you will be able to attend.
