A Zoom presentation performed by Andrew Lound for World Book Night
In 1898 H.G. Wells wrote a “Romance of Science” that became a watershed in literature. The story of an invasion from Mars shocked and thrilled Victorians. Wells did not realize that he had laid down the blue print for a century of alien invasion stories with his own story being reproduced in plays, radio plays, movies and even records. Andrew dramatic tells the history of the famous book, which was a World Book Night title in 2019, and subsequent incarnations with video, slides and audio. Be prepared for an entertaining invasion evening!
Andrew is a regular and extremely popular speaker at Staffordshire Libraries and this talk is sure to be fascinating and entertainingly told in Andrew’s inimitable style.
