Desert Island Books: Books & Travel @ Redland Library

March 12 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm


In Desert Island Books, a panel of interesting people select one book on the main theme for the event; and a second ‘wildcard book’, being a book that they have enjoyed and would recommend to others.

The theme for this event is “Books & Travel” and our panel comprises:

  • Jean Burnett ( Novelist, travel writer, speaker, also writes as Fran Kempton )
  • Professor Helen Fulton ( Head of Department of English, University of Bristol )
  • Professor Robin Jarvis ( Emeritus Professor of English Literature, UWE  
  • Mike Manson ( Writer, historian, co-organiser Bristol Festival of Literature )


Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” ~ Jack Kerouac


Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”  ~ Mark Twain



The event is being organised by The Friends of Redland Library.  We are a voluntary group set up to support Redland Library, helping to sustain and improve its service, and also connecting it with the local and wider community.   Redland Library is situated on Whiteladies Road, close to Clifton Down train station.
