The works of Nobel Prize Laureate, Kazuo Ishiguro OBE, will be in the spotlight at a free University Centre Shrewsbury (UCS) event this month.

Dr Giulia Miller will host the session on Saturday February 17, 2018, from 1.30pm until 3.30pm, at the University Centre’s learning and research base at Guildhall.

She said: “Ishiguro won the 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature, and is best known for novels, The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go, which have been adapted into highly acclaimed films.

“Join us to discuss the works of this writer, described by the Swedish Academy as one ‘who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world’.”

Dr Miller is a Visiting Lecturer in English Literature and Film at UCS.

Admission to the event is free, but booking is essential. To reserve a place go to https://nobelprizeroundtable.eventbrite.co.uk or www.ucshrewsbury.ac.uk/public-events.
