Talk Edinburgh International Book Festival - Jeremy Paxman

Edinburgh International Book Festival - Jeremy Paxman


There are events for just about every age and interest at the Book Festival, bringing readers and writers together for inspiration, entertainment and discussion. Around 1000 authors appear in over 800 events, including novelists, poets, scientists, sportsmen, illustrators, comics creators, historians, musicians, biographers, Nobel and Booker prize-winners and many more besides.
Who hasn’t Jeremy Paxman interviewed? Not Margaret Thatcher, apparently, but nearly everybody else worth interviewing has at some stage sat in front of BBC Newsnight's Great Interrogator in his 25 years at the helm. We’re delighted to have him here to discuss his memoir A Life in Questions - which will, of course, be followed by yet more from the audience.
Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
