David Nicholls in Conversation
Friday 4 October 2019, 7pm
Martin Harris Centre for Music & Drama
(Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall)
Remember the summer you left school and fell in love for the first time? Charlie Lewis, the protagonist of David Nicholls’ excellent new novel Sweet Sorrow, does. But Charlie also has to grapple with his parent’s divorce, his dad’s depression and what sort of person he wants to be. An award-winning British novelist (One Day) and scriptwriter (Far From the Madding Crowd), David will discuss his work for the page and screen. Why he writes about love, friendship and relationships, the art of balancing comedy, drama and tragedy, and adapting for film and television (including the BAFTA-winning Patrick Melrose). Hosted by Alex Clark, and presented in partnership with the Centre for New Writing and Creative Manchester.
Doors open 6.30pm
