Close Read: Open Book on Memoir

Marjorie Lotfi and Claire Urquhart from Open Book, a charity that organises reading and creative writing groups, explore the fascinating, often heartbreaking genre of memoir. Join them for an open discussion on some key memoirs at this year’s Festival, including Catherine Simpson’s One Body, Chitra Ramaswamy’s Homelands and Michael Pedersen’s Boy Friends. Reading the books in advance is not required to enjoy this open conversation.
