Lifelines with Rose Tremain CBE
Thursday 2 February, 7:30pm
Journalist and producer Piers Plowright chats with award-winning author and Chancellor of the University of East Anglia Rose Tremain, whose novels and short stories have been published worldwide in 27 countries and have won many prizes, including the Sunday Express Book of the Year Award (for Restoration, also shortlisted for the Booker Prize); the Prix Femina Etranger, France (for Sacred Country); the Whitbread Novel of the Year Award (for Music and Silence); and the Orange Prize for Fiction 2008 (for The Road Home). Restoration was filmed in 1995 and a stage version was produced in 2009. Her latest novel is the acclaimed The Gustav Sonata, which sees Rose “writing at the height of her inimitable powers” (The Observer).
A supper including wine is available after the talk for an additional £20.
