Insight: Discussion on Whitman and Tchaikovsky

Inspired by Wells’ The Time Machine, we travel back in time in this year's Strange Concords: Words and Music Time Machine Events to alight on seminal artistic creations that once shaped our cultural future.

Join us for an insight discussion on Walt Whitman and Petyr Ilych Tchaikovsky, and what inspired the Book Festival curators to bring together their words and music in surprising, but exciting, conjunctions.

This event takes place at Holy Trinity Church, Sandgate Road, Folkestone, CT20 2HQ

1876 - USA & Russia takes place on Saturday 16 November at 10.30am and 1pm at Holy Trinity Church. The Seasons by Petyr Ilych Tchaikovsky for solo piano, performed by Saskia Giorgini and readings of Leaves of Grass, poems by Walt Whitman.
