Woo-hoo! The Aberystwyth University team (Jayne Archer, Howard "Sid" Thomas and me) that brought you "Keats's Car Park" last year has just won an essay prize with a paper entitled "Reading with the Grain: Sustainability and the Literary Imagination". Lead-authored by Jayne, the paper explores Shakespeare's involvement in the grain business. The competition prize is to deliver the paper as a public lecture followed by panel discussion with former Welsh Minister for Sustainability Jane Davidson at the Hay Festival on 23 May, 7pm. Hope to see you there.
