Dai Smith Lecture on Library of Wales Series 26/09/2012
Dai Smith, Professor in the Cultural History of Wales at Swansea University and Series Editor of the Library of Wales books, will be discussing the collection in a Newport and Gwent Literary Society lecture on Wednesday 26th September 2012.
The lecture will consider the aims of the series and the role it is playing in bringing Wales' rich literary heritage to new audiences. Through these texts, until now unavailable or out-of-print, or merely forgotten, the Library of Wales will bring back into play the voices that have expressed the complexity of the Welsh people. The Library of Wales is published by Parthian.
Dai Smith is the Library of Wales series editor and Professor in the Cultural History of Wales at Swansea University. He is the Chair of the Arts Council of Wales.
This event is supported by Literature Wales
