Fay Weldon in Conversation
from 06:30 PM to 07:30 PM
Closing the festival on a high, we welcome legendary author Fay Weldon to Leicester. Fay will discuss her latest book, Before the War (2016), with Founder Chair of the Contemporary Women’s Writing Association, Professor Mary Eagleton. They will reflect on changes in the social and literary landscape since the publication of Fay’s first novel, The Fat Woman’s Joke (1967), almost 50 years ago.
This event is the first in an annual series of talks and lectures held in partnership with the Contemporary Women’s Writing Association.
