In her new book, Inventing Edward Lear, Sara Lodge draws on Lear’s diaries, letters and new sources to explain his engagement in the intellectual, social, and cultural life of his times. For StAnza 2019’s final evening, she is joined by musicians Mark Wilde and David Owen Norris to present a glorious celebration of Lear in word and music. (here to buy tickets).
