2nd of May 2019 – Keeping it in the family

What’s it like to write about a family member – either alive or dead? You have the advantage of knowing or having known the person – but there are all kinds of traps and hazards. On the 2nd of May the Biographers’ Club is thrilled to be hosting a discussion on this topic, chaired by Elisa Segrave (whose The Girl from Station X is about her mother) and with Miranda Seymour (In My Father’s House) and George Szirtes, whose The Photographer at Sixteen, about his mother, was recently published to wide acclaim.

Location:
Maggs Bros,
48 Bedford Square,
WC1B 3DR

Time: 6.30pm for 7.00-8.30pm

Price:  £12.50 for a glass (or two) of wine
