An Evening with Alan Johnson

Sunday 10 October, 7.30pm
Central Library

Much-loved former Labour MP Alan Johnson makes a welcome return to MLF. Following his series of successful memoirs – This Boy, In My Life, The Long and Winding Road and Please, Mr Postman, Alan has turned to fiction, joining us to discuss his thrilling debut novel The Late Train to Gypsy Hill. Featuring a Ukranian waitress mixed up in a poisoning plot and an administrator who finds himself on the run from Russian secret agents and the Met, it’s an enthralling, smartly written, page turner. Come and hear Alan discuss his passion for plot-twists, politics and writing with host Ellah P Wakatama.
