Cambridge Wordfest Winter 2011

Join us at Winter Wordfest 2011 for a vibrant and varied programme of  literary treats. On 27 November, we’ll be back in the ADC bringing some of the finest authors to Cambridge and we do hope that you can join us there.

Authors appearing include:

Former Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling, talking about his 1000 days at Number 11, guiding Britain's economy through the worst financial crisis in the nation's history; Ian Hislop joins us to celebrate 50 years of Private Eye, Britain’s first, most successful and indeed only fortnightly satirical magazine; Claire Tomalin with her major new biography of Charles Dickens published for the 200th anniversary of his birth; Ali Smith returns with her inventive and moving new novel There but for the; Peter Popham joins us to talk about his vividly written portrait of Aung San Suu Kyi, the international symbol of peaceful resistance in the face of oppression; and Diana Athill discusses her life and work and her latest publication Instead of a Book.
