The great Cambridge writer M.
The great Cambridge writer M. R. James was known to read his ghost stories to entertain friends on Christmas Eve. We will be reviving the tradition with a solstice celebration!

Afterward, Dr. Helen Marshall, Prof. Sarah Annes Brown and Mr. Oliver will discuss the development of the ghost story tradition.
