Alan Johnson - A Life in Politics
Sun 6 November 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
The first two volumes of Alan Johnson’s autobiography have been universally acclaimed and justly rewarded with many prizes. The third volume, The Long and Winding Road tells of Alan’s early skirmishes as a trades union leader, where his charismatic style and negotiating skill soon came to the notice of senior members of the Labour Party. Alan entered Parliament as an MP after the landslide election victory for Labour in May 1997 and rapidly earned the respect of all sides with his characteristic honesty and authenticity – qualities which shine through his writing. A great speaker as well as a fine writer, Alan will be in conversation with MP for Torfaen Nick Thomas-Symonds.
Copies of Alan's latest book 'The Long and winding Road' will be available to purchase on the night for the special price of £11.99 to all ticket holders.
