Talk Edinburgh International Book Festival - Alan Johnson

Edinburgh International Book Festival - Alan Johnson

Synopsis

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.
 
KNOCK ON THE DOORS OF POWER
The Long and Winding Road, the third volume in Alan Johnson’s multi award-winning autobiography takes him to Parliament in 1997 as an MP for Hull, rising through Labour’s ranks to become Home Secretary in 2009. Just like his two other bestselling volumes, its amiable lack of self-regard makes one realise what a popular Labour leader – or indeed PM – he would have made.
 
Chaired by Jane Fowler.
