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! Playwright, actor and award-winning short story writer Reggie Oliver will be reading ‘A Game of Bear’, left unfinished by James and completed by Oliver himself. Afterward, Dr. Helen Marshall, Prof. Sarah Annes Brown and Mr. Oliver will discuss the development of the ghost story tradition.
