This year’s Bath Festival will feature a discussion of Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber. Hosted by Backlisted Podcast (John Mitchinson and Andy Miller), this literary podcast will focus on Carter’s most famous collection of short stories from 1979, many of which were conceived and/or written while she lived in Bath. Hosts Mitchinson and Miller will be joined by novelist Rachel Heath, critic Arifa Akbar and the festival’s artistic director Alex Clark for what will surely be a scintillating conversation. The event will take place in the Assembly Rooms on the 23rd May from 5-6pm.
