The British Institute of Florence celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great writer Muriel Spark by dedicating an entire evening of its Cultural Programme to her.
Muriel Spark – author of refined and intriguing novels such as "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" and "Memento mori" - was born in Scotland in 1918 but lived most of her life in Tuscany and is thus an emblematic personality of the cultural exchanges between Italy and the United Kingdom that also animated the foundation and life of the British Institute.
Alan Taylor, author of the recent biography "Appointment in Arezzo", will give a lecture entitled "Muriel Spark: appointment in Arezzo / Florence". The conference will be followed by a small refreshment and the screening of one of the films based on her novels.
During the evening and throughout the month of October it will also be possible to view an exhibition of materials from the library dedicated to the author.
The event starts at 6pm, screening of the film at 8pm.
