Is A Dance to the Music of Time the only reason to read Anthony Powell?
Or do his other novels, memoirs, journals, reviews, criticism, biography and plays offer a body of work fully the equal of Dance?
Join Nick Birns and guests for an invigorating afternoon debate on whether Anthony Powell was the author of one great work or the great author of many works in multiple genres.

A rare opportunity to hear and debate with one of the world’s experts on Anthony Powell’s works

Members and non-members welcome.

Please book by email to secretary@anthonypowell.org.
