One Night Only
1922: Constellation of Genius
Annus mirabilis seems a feeble description for that year
Annus mirabilis seems a feeble description for that year of Stein, Woolf, Joyce, Eliot, Chaplin, Keaton, Hemingway, Lawrence, Stravinsky, Proust, Dorothy Parker, Scott Fitzgerald, Nabokov, Hammett, Einstein, the first radio broadcast, the first documentary film, the opening of King Tut’s tomb and so much more, all contending for notice on the bright stage of 1922. Kevin Jackson’s best-selling book explores a momentous year in world culture.
Actor and academic Jack Klaff introduces and chairs a sparky discussion involving a panel and remarks from the audience celebrating the remarkable year, and a remarkable man, the author Kevin Jackson. Panelists include journalist, broadcaster, author, and cultural historian Dr Matthew Sweet, journalist and broadcaster Tom Sutcliffe, historian Professor Dame Marina Warner and author Professor Claire Preston.
