As part of Leeds Lit Fest 2019.
From Tragedy to Triumph – how Leeds (and Yorkshire) lead the way. After years in the wilderness Leeds United could be returning to the promised land. Anthony Clavane, author of Promised Land and Moving the Goalposts, talks about this revival, with fellow writer James Oddy, and what it means for the city and Yorkshire.
Anthony has written three books including Promised Land which was about Leeds and was named Football Book of the Year and Sports Book of the Year by the National Sporting Club – as well as Sports Book of the Year by The Radio 2 Book Club.
James Oddy was born in Leeds, and never left. He has written extensively about sport and culture for titles such as Prospect, The Yorkshire Post and Boxing Monthly. He is the author of True Professional, The Clive Sullivan story, A Guardian sports book of the year in 2017.
This event starts at 7pm. Tickets are £5.
