LITERARY LECTURE SERIES IN ENGLISH.

This year APABAL (Associació del Professorat d’Anglès de les Illes Balears) is for the first time organising a series of literary lectures in the English language, sponsored by Obra Social “La Caixa”, CaixaForum Palma.

The dissemination of the language and culture of English-speaking countries is one of the main objectives of our association. To this end, we have invited three keynote speakers to give a series of talks on the following famous twentieth-century English speaking writers: James Joyce, Virginia Woolf and Robert Graves.

These talks will be given entirely in English during March and April 2019. They are designed to be accessible to a wide audience, and are geared towards people who believe they have a sufficient command of English to follow a lecture in this language.
