“If you’re from Barnsley, like I am, then A Kestrel For a Knave is your defining myth, your Domesday Book.” Ian McMillan
The film Kes dominates our understanding of Barry Hines and his work but the writing of this Dearne Valley author is starting to receive renewed attention.
In a partnership with the University of Sheffield and Barnsley Libraries we are delighted to offer a series of sessions exploring A Kestrel For a Knave at Hoyland Library. This second session will be a chance to respond to the theme and ideas in the book either through your own writing, art work or stories.
To fully take part you must have read A Kestrel For a Knave recently. Contact your local library to reserve a copy.
The final session is on Friday 3 June, 2-4pm, a chance to visit to the Barry Hines Archive at the University of Sheffield.
Free refreshments are being provided by Tesco Hoyland.
Places are free but must be booked.
