We are delighted to welcome William Boyd, author and screenwriter to Lancing for the first time to give our eleventh Evelyn Waugh Lecture on 25 April 2019. The title of his talk is ‘Evelyn Waugh: A Self Divided’.
William Boyd has published fifteen novels, five volumes of short stories and some seventeen of his screenplays have been filmed. Two of these films include adaptations of Evelyn Waugh's "Scoop" and the "Sword of Honour" trilogy. Boyd has written widely on Waugh and his work, including the introduction to the Everyman edition of "A Handful of Dust". Evelyn Waugh has even appeared — in a cameo role — in his novel "Any Human Heart". He admits to being something of a Waugh-obsessive.
This very special occasion is by invitation only and open to all members of the Lancing Foundation in recognition of their support for the College.
Dress code: Lounge suit.
