Jim Mussell, Laurel Brake, and Roger Luckhurst are holding an event at the British Library on Tuesday 14 May 2013, 6:30-8pm, to mark the publication of the book, W.T. Stead: Newspaper Revolutionary (British Library, 2012), and the special issue on Stead of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century(out early May 2013). The event will feature short talks from Rohan McWilliam, Kate Campbell, and Tony Nicholson, a Q and A, and drinks and nibbles. It's free to attend, but you need to 'buy' a ticket via the BL Box Office here:
It promises to be an interesting evening and a good opportunity to reflect on W.T. Stead and his legacy, 101 years on.
