Hunter Davies: My Life with Margaret

- £9

Part of our Associated Events Programme; with Borderlines Carlisle Book Festival

Hunter Davies will be in conversation with Roger Bolton, who was also brought up in Carlisle, and presents “Feedback” on Radio 4.

Hunter talks about his late wife, Margaret Forster who died in February following a long and courageous battle against cancer. They were married for almost 60 years. Margaret wrote extensively, both fiction and non-fiction, drawing on her Cumbrian background. Hunter and Roger will  no doubt talk about other matters Cumbrian, in their own inimitable way.

Hunter Davies, brought up in Carlisle, educated at Durham University, is one of our best known and most prolific writers and journalists. Even in this, his 80th year, he has excelled himself, with three books out, all in the same year. His memoirs of growing up in the Fifties, “The Co-op’s Got Bananas!” came out to great acclaim in April .This was followed in June with “ Lakeland, a Personal Journey ” Then finally, in the autumn, The Beatles Book will be published.
