Hexham: Join the book blog!

PAINFULLY honest former MP Edwina Currie and Observer theatre critic Susannah Clapp ring the starting bell for this year’s Hexham Book Festival on Wednesday with talks about their own particular brand of memoirs.

Mountaineer Joe Simpson, broadcaster Ed Stourton, the hilarious Michael Frayn, crime writer Sophie Hannah and the war correspondent in the white suit, Martin Bell, will be just some of those stepping into the ring.

Readers can roll with the punches throughout the 10-day festival by logging on to the Hexham Book Festival live blog on the Courant’s culture and listings website www.tyneout.co.uk and join in with the chat – we’d be glad to hear from you!
