Alan Johnson (2015 Event)

Amid a slew of politicians’ memoirs in recent years, Alan Johnson’s This Boy was comfortably among the finest: one critic called it ‘the best political testament I’ve ever read’. Now the former Home Secretary returns with a sequel Please, Mister Postman, which takes a nostalgic journey back in time and paints a vivid picture of Britain in the 1970s. Watch his event, filmed live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival 2015.
