Event description

Description

In the centenary year of Roald Dahl's birth we welcome his official biographer and artistic director of the Roald Dahl Foundation, Donald Sturrock to our festival.

Donald Sturrock has collected together Dahl's letters to his mother (mini-stories in their own right) in his book 'Letters from Boy' (a Radio 4 Book of the Week). The book brims with outlandish characters and madcap adventures, and we witness Dahl turning from a boy to a man, and finally becoming a writer.

Sturrock has also written the award-winning authorised biography of Roald Dahl, in which reveals many hidden aspects of his life; his terrifying experiences as a fighter pilot; the anguish caused by the death of his seven-year-old daughter; his work for military intelligence at the end of the war and more. Written with exclusive access to his private papers and with reference to hundreds of newly-discovered letters, ‘Storyteller’ reveals Roald Dahl as we've never seen him before.

'A truly magnificent biography... a masterly account' A.N. Wilson

Donald Sturrock gives a personal insight into the mind of this boy who became the nation's favourite storyteller.
