Muriel Spark’s name is synonymous with The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. But what makes the charismatic teacher such a fascinating character? What are the similarities between her and her real-life inspiration, Miss Christina Kay?

Chaired by Gail Wylie of the Muriel Spark Society. Part of our Muriel Spark 100 series of events.
