Penelope Lively at the London Lit Festival

October 6, 2013 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

‘This is not quite a memoir. Rather, it is the view from old age. And a view of old age itself, this place at which we arrive with a certain surprise – ambushed, or so it can seem. One of the few advantages of age is that you can report on it with a certain authority; you are a native now, and know what goes on here.’

Dame Penelope Lively reflects on old age, her life and times, memory, reading and writing, and the subject of her book, Ammonites and Leaping Fish.

She will be interviewed by writer & broadcaster Harriett Gilbert who presentsWorld Book Club (BBC World Service) and A Good Read (BBC R4).
