Ted Hughes: The Unauthorised Life

To celebrate the publication of Jonathan Bate’s new biography, we are joined by Bate, Seamus Perry and Oliver Taplin to discuss life-writing, poetry and the poet.

We are also delighted to announce that Anne Farrar Donovan, cousin of Ted Hughes, will be joining the event. She will discuss her reaction to Jonathan Bate’s biography and share her memories of Ted and the Farrar family, including visits from Seamus Heaney and the time when she went to school with Frieda and Nicholas Hughes in Heptonstall.

There will be a drinks reception after the event. Free, all welcome, booking recommended to guarantee a seat.
