Tea & Cake with Oscar Wilde: A Vagabond in Leeds
Date: Saturday 21 March, 3pm to 4:30pm
Speaker: Geoff Dibb
As part of Headingley LitFest, Leeds Salon has invited Geoff Dibb to discuss his book Oscar Wilde - Vagabond with a Mission: The Story of Oscar Wilds Lecture Tours of Britain and Ireland
Oscar Wilde - A Vagabond with a Mission gives a vivid picture of Oscar Wilde lecturing throughout Britain and Ireland on his way to becoming one of the most famous writers of the time. This is the first study of Wilde's lecture tours of Britain and Ireland. Using letters, memoirs, biographies, previously unpublished information and thousands of contemporary newspaper accounts, Geoff Dibb gives us a portrait of Wilde which we have never seen before.
