Leeds Lit Fest presents
Peter Fiennes’ new book Footnotes: A Journey Round Britain in the Company of Great Writers is an entertaining and thought-provoking journey around the UK in search of the favourite places of some of our best known authors including Enid Blyton, J B Priestley, Beryl Bainbridge, and Charles Dickens. Along the way he explores the writers’ lives and works and the landscapes that inspired them, and asks how much Britain – and our idea of it – has changed over time.
Peter Fiennes is a former publisher of the Time Out Guides and author of a much praised book about our native woodlands – Oak and Ash and Thorn – a Guardian Book of the Year.
Tickets are £8, or £6 if you are a Leeds Library Member. Please show your card on the day.
