Date: Friday, 11 October 12:30

Award-winning Playwright, poet and essayist Barney Norris will be our speaker for the popular Book Lover's lunch at Chewton Glen.

Barney grew up in Salisbury and upon leaving university, founded the theatre company Up In Arms. He won the Critics’ Circle and Offwestend Awards for Most Promising Playwright for his debut full-length play Visitors. He is the Martin Esslin Playwright in Residence at Keble College, Oxford. Barney will talk about his latest book, The Vanishing Hours, a novel about the pain of abandonment, the enduring power of love and the quest for meaning in a confusing world – a world that can overwhelm us, but one that is rich with possibility, and always full of wonder.

‘Life-affirming, beautiful and achingly poignant’ Donal Ryan
‘Barney Norris is a rare and precious talent’ Evening Standard
‘Courageous...memorable...moving’ The Guardian
‘One of our most exciting young writers’ The Times
‘Utterly convincing...profound and elegiac’ The Daily Mail
‘A memorable writer, mature beyond his years.’ The Sunday Times

The price includes a three course lunch at Chewton Glen.
