The next event we have planned for the Genius Friend world tour is – the Alderney Literary Festival on 18 – 20 March.
We are looking forward to visiting the island where G.B. Edwards’s grandfather went to live with his second wife, Mary Organ. This provided the inspiration for the episode in The Book of Ebenezer Le Page where Isabel Mansell was sent to Alderney to stay with Ebenezer’s step-grandmother when his cousin Horace got her pregnant.
You can read more about this in our guest blog post on the Alderney Literary Trust blog.
They have a great line-up including Dame Stella Rimington (novelist and former Director-General of MI5), who will be discussing with Edward Chaney: ‘Auto/biographies: When the author is more than just the author’ on Sunday morning.
Look forward to seeing you there!
