Open Lectures & Talks'Following the tremendous success of its first writers-in-residence scheme, Gladstone’s Library is looking for another four writers to take up residence in 2013, following in the footsteps of the 2012 winners: Naomi Alderman, Stella Duffy, Nadene Ghouri and Ian Parks. Built in 1902 to house the library of pioneering politican and celebrated Prime Minister William E. Gladstone, the Library has twenty-six recently renovated rooms and is the UK’s only residential library. “We are committed to maintaining Gladstone's legacy of engagement with social, moral and spiritual questions by helping people reflect more deeply on the questions that concern them,” says Peter Francis, Warden of the Library. “This scheme is an extension of that mission.”'
