Tales of the Tyne at Seven Stories

About

As the mines closed and the shipyards fell silent, the North East saw the end of a long and vibrant tradition. Where next for the communities who had grown up with the old industries woven into the fabric of their lives? David Almond’s wild and beautiful stories explore the end of the old North East, and the possibilities for new beginnings.

Join Dr Lucy Pearson (Newcastle University’s Children’s Literature Unit) as she explores how David imagines these endings and beginnings.  Talk followed by a tour of exhibition Where Your Wings Were…Journeys with David Almond. 

Delivered as part of Being Human Festival: From Source to Sea.
