The Carnival of Knowledge

|

In anticipation of Granta’s day at the Hendrick’s Carnival of Knowledge, Edinburgh on 9th August, we've gathered together features, interviews and stories from some of the participants.

Best of Young British Novelists Jenni Fagan and Steven Hall will be talking to Stuart Kelly and John Freeman, two of the judges of the list, for a discussion on their writing and writing lives.

Steven Hall will be talking with academic David Hermann on literary endings and humankind’s obsession with the apocalypse. See below for a podcast with Steven on his novel and on being a Granta Best of Young British Novelist.

There will also be a workshop hosted by Suzanne Azzopardi (Literary Death Match executive producer) and comedienne and author Viv Groskop on ‘How to Read a Story’: part stand-up comedy, part acting workshop, and the actors from Liar’s League will be hosting a storytelling salon featuring some of their favourite stories from the Granta Archive.

Henrietta Clemett from Liar’s League reads ‘After the Hedland’ by Evie Wyld.

There will also be a free collage-making workshop with illustrator Kanitta Meechubot, featured in Granta: Horror, and a contributor to several other issues, who'll guide you through mapping the forest of your imagination in paper, ink and glue.

A closer look at Kanitta Meechubot’s illustration for Granta 117: Horror.

Hendrick’s Carnival of Knowledge with Granta takes place on 9 August, noon to 11.30pm, One Royal Circus, Edinburgh EH3 6TL. Some events are free and others are ticketed (£12, including a cocktail) please click here for the full programme.

    On the other hand, it is constantly best to impart your individual encounters and cases wherever conceivable.

    Why all the hate for mutants? A lot of people like having pets that are a mesh of blerg. I'll take the mutant quiggle's adorable drooling grin or the mutant moehog's cute dopey smile over any of the traditionally "cool" or "pretty" pets everyone else goes wild over.

    But yeah aliens would be really cool. I feel like the alien aisha's lab-only status made them really unlikely to ever do this though :(

    Many patients lose a lot of blood loss during surgery. Bleeding is common, but excessive bleeding can be troublesome. Bleeding might happen during the procedure and sometimes afterwards too.

    Saturated fats are the worst fats to take in. These are fats like animal lard and butter. Saturated fats are those that stay solid at room temperature.

    According to the specifics of your case, your attorney may also need additional documents from you. One key in making the bankruptcy process go smoother is for you to do your part and have all of these documents at the ready for your attorney. http://socialsignalsseo.typepad.com http://imakemoneyonline.typepad.com
