Sunday 16 June : Town Hall: 3pm £8 (including tea) Reserved seating
With 17 novels, including the best-selling ‘Tulip Fever’, two collections of short stories and many successful screenplays to her name, Deborah Moggach has a wealth of material to talk about, including her latest novel published earlier this year. After the far-flung charms of ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’, the record-breaking British film adapted from her novel ‘These Foolish Things’, her new book ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ moves to the Welsh countryside. Described as a ‘warm, wise and funny romp’ it is certain to appeal to the author’s many fans.
Deborah will be answering questions and signing books after the talk.
