Tony Crowley’s Liverpool: A Memoir of Words is a work of creative non-fiction.
It combines the study of language in Liverpool with social history, the history of the English language and personal memoir. A beautifully written book, it’s based on a lifetime’s academic research. Within its pages, it explores the relationship between language and memory, and demonstrates the ways in which words are enmeshed in history and history in words.
During this book launch, the author will discuss the influence of Ireland both on the language of Liverpool and on the story of language in Liverpool.
This event is held in partnership with Central Library.
