Bournville: Jonathan Coe

No one writes about Birmingham quite like Jonathan Coe. Across books like The Rotter’s Club, Middle England and now Bournville, his books have chronicled the history and social politics of the Midlands.

Bournville interrogates 75 years of postwar history through one Birmingham family. Set in the suburbs of Bournville, it examines social change across the city through national celebrations such as royal weddings and funerals, coronations, football matches and pandemics.

Join us for an evening of enjoying Birmingham as examined by one of our foremost chroniclers.

Sponsored by Birmingham City University.
