The Centre for Life-Writing Research presents Diaryfest, a day of talks about diaries. Eminent biographers, critics, writers and film-makers will talk about different aspects of diaries, on subjects ranging from Pepys to refugees. Famous, infamous and anonymous diarists provide fascinating human and historical interest.
At the end there was a special opportunity to view the exhibition Dear Diary: A Celebration of Diaries and their Digital Descendants at the Inigo Rooms, East Wing, Somerset House, in the company of diary experts.
