Hadley Freeman (2016 Event)
For many, the 80s was a decade that taste didn’t just forget, but totally bypassed. Guardian and Vogue columnist Hadley Freeman does not subscribe to that one bit and is so passionate about 80s American movies that she’s written a book about them. Life Moves Pretty Fast features the classics (Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) and explains how they helped forge her worldview. In her event, filmed live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival, she talks about her book with Lee Randall.
