Thursday 4 October: GE Moore Lecture at Dulwich College
6.30-9pm. It is widely known that P.G. Wodehouse was a proud old boy of Dulwich College. It is a little less well-known that Raymond Chandler, CS Forrester and Dennis Wheatley were also alumni. Or that two Booker prize winning writers, Michael Ondaatje and Graham Swift, attended the school in the 1950s and ‘60s respectively. And that Booker nominated Tom McCarthy (‘C’) and Tom Rob Smith (Child 44) followed them in the 1980s and 90s. Please join us for a conversation about the life and works of these writers and to discuss why Dulwich College might have produced a disproportionate number of eminent and popular authors over the last 120 years – and hopes to do so again over the course of the next century, as it progresses towards its 500thanniversary. We are delighted to have Patrick Humphries OA, the author of biographies of Nick Drake, Bruce Springsteen and Richard Thompson, who has been commissioned to write a personal account of the Dulwich writers he remembers reading in his youth, and yet another popular Old Alleynian writer Simon Brett OBE (Charles Paris, Mrs Pargeter, Fethering, Blotto and Twinks and After Henry) in conversation with Dr Joe Spence, Master of Dulwich College. Tickets are £10 and will go on sale from late August.
