The Wimbledon BookFest has asked me to mention them, and I’m happy to spread the word as my own event is one of the first in this year’s BookFest.
The festival runs from 2-10 October and you can find out more here. On the evening of Saturday 2 October I’m giving a talk, at a lovely house in Wimbledon Village, about my books. I’ll be reading excerpts from the books, talking about why I feel drawn to write about my experience of performance, and I’ll be playing the piano as well.
The evening begins at 6pm with a talk by author Philip Ball about music and the brain, and after a half-hour drinks interval, we continue at 7.30pm with my talk. You can buy a composite ticket for the whole evening (6-7pm and 7.30-8.30pm plus the drinks interval), or you can buy a ticket for just one of the talks.
