Swindon

Andrew Wilson rejoins the tour as my interviewer at the Swindon Arts Centre. I was here in 2014 at the Swindon Literary Festival promoting ‘This Boy’.  Five years (and three more books) later, this snug little theatre remains as atmospheric as I remember from those early days of attending the vibrant public meetings that books and literature attracts. Our ‘Evening With’ adds music to the mix and we spend a happy couple of hours with the good folk of Swindon.

Debby from the White Horse Bookshop in Marlborough sold books for me to sign before and after the event as well as during the 15 minute interval.
