I will be giving a talk at The Manchester Literary Festival on Sunday 15th October. As the City Art Gallery has one of my father's Glassblowers oil paintings, the illustrated talk and the painting will provide two Mervyn Peake events in the same place.
Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with the energy and detail which Sebastian used to keep us up-to-date with any news of his father's work, particularly during the centenary year, 2011.
His sudden death has been a great shock to his friends and family but the promotion of his father's work will continue under the guidance of his brother and sister, Fabian and Clare.
I worked with Sebastian on the blog and will continue to add details of events and new publications as well as any other news when it becomes available.
