We are delighted that Alan Kennedy has kindly agreed to talk about why AR’s Honorary Degree ceremony in Durham University was such a disaster. It will involve posing some hard questions about his Russian years (and will cover, in passing , his correspondence with PG Wodehouse). It includes some specific reference to the novels, but does not assume that everybody has read everything.
Alan is the author of “A Thoroughly Mischievous Person: The Other Arthur Ransome” (The Lutterworth Press, 2021) and has written several articles for TARS Mixed Moss magazine, including “Who is the Great Aunt” (MM 2020) and “Ransome, Radek and ‘Beautiful Untrue Things’ (MM 2022).
TARS members of other regions are warmly invited to join us. Please contact Barbara for the Zoom link if you have not received it from your Regional Secretary, or look in Signals on page 37.
