Host: London Literature Festival
Location: Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
Speaker: Michael Morpurgo, Maggie Fergusson
Join us for this festival opener with one of the UK's most cherished authors, as Michael Morpurgo opens up about his own life alongside his distinguished biographer Maggie Fergusson. Michael Morpurgo's richly imagined stories have inspired a generation of readers, and have been triumphantly adapted for stage and screen. In an unusual new biography, written by Maggie Fergusson, his life story is told in seven chapters, to which Michael has 'responded' with seven new stories of his own. Fergusson writes of his attempts to fit in, the destructive concealment by Jack Morpurgo of the truth about his father, and his profound friendships, including that with Ted Hughes.
