Lynne Truss - Monday 14 October 2019, 7.00pm

Lynne Truss is a hugely entertaining author, journalist and BBC presenter, she also writes extensively for radio, including dramas, adaptations and short stories. Her book on her irritations about poor grammar, Eats, Shoots & Leaves: the Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, was a runaway success, winning her book prizes and inspiring her Radio 4 show about punctuation, Cutting a Dash. She began her career in the media as a literary editor and TV critic before turning her attention to the pitch, as a sportswriter for The Times, and her book Get Her Off the Pitch: How Sport Took Over My Life amuses about those years. She has written seven novels, most recently a comic detective series set in Brighton, A Shot in the Dark and The Man That Got Away are the first two of her Inspector Twitten Mysteries.

This talk is open to the public.
