Literature Lecture and Lunch: Seven Years in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer
5th July, 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm£20
Not a novel this time but one of the best travel books and the only one where the young German author had full access to one of the most remote and mysterious lands. A classic and the forerunner of many later Harrer travel books, it introduces us to the Dalai Lama as a curious child.
Part of a series of literature lectures exploring great writers, their lives and their books, followed by a delicious Launde Lunch. Presented by renowned speaker Dr Jane Mackay.
The lecture lasts for approximately one hour and is followed by a two-course lunch in the Abbey Dining Room.
