We had a lovely Literature Event yesterday. Catherine Bateson was fantastic, especially for poetry, all the sessions went smoothly and we have had great feedback from the staff and students.
The English department have even said that students would have liked more time with Catherine for the poetry component.
We are now thinking about next year and would love to have Catherine back. We had a great time, thanks so much.
