Biographer’s Ball

From Shakespeare to George Bernard Shaw, Nora Barnacle to Virginia Woolf, our four guest writers have written outstanding biographies on outstanding people. But how do you capture a life, how honest can you be, do you have to like your subjects and how do you distill the essence of let’s say a William Shakespeare?  Join us as we discuss great lives, great drama and great story-telling.
