Today I’m reviewing something a little different. Instead of reviewing a novel or a film I’m reviewing a party I went to… a literacy party. Every year the School Of Advanced Studies at the University Of London throw a Living Literature party in which a famous novel is brought to life.
In 2016 Senate House was transformed into the prohibition era as we re-created The Great Gatsby. We learnt about illegal alcohol brewed at the time and more about the author of The Great Gatsby, F Scott Fitzgerald.
In 2017 we learnt about Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time and discovered that your body doesn’t have five senses it actually has twenty two.
Two weeks ago I attended the Frankenstein party where we discussed Victorian ghost stories and the first Science Fiction novel.
