Kate Adie To Speak At Literary Festival

We are busily putting together our programme for this year’s Literary Festival, which will take place on Wednesday 11th July. The full programme and booking details will be out within the next couple of weeks. But we can’t keep our big news secret any longer! Our headline speaker will be author and broadcaster, Kate Adie!

Kate became a familiar figure through her work as BBC Chief News Correspondent. She is considered to be among the most reliable reporters, as well as one of the first British women, sending despatches from danger zones around the world. Kate is also the long-serving presenter of Radio 4’s From Our Own Correspondent and a presenter or contributor to many other radio and television programmes.

Given our theme for this year of 1918…2018, it is most appropriate that Kate’s most recent book is Fighting on the Home Front: the legacy of women in World War I. We’re delighted that Kate has agreed to join us this year, and look forward to hearing her speak.
