Shoreham Wordfest (AUTHOR DAY) Sally Bayley: Girl with Dove and No Boys Play Here

October 3 4:30 pm

£10

Sally’s first novel, Girl With Dove was featured as BBC Radio 4’s Book of the Week.  It is an extraordinary book describing a chaotic and deprived childhood, based in Littlehampton and Lancing, where life is redeemed and understood through the stories and characters in the books she took refuge in.  The sequel No Boys Play Here continues the exploration of childhood, family and identity with the assistance of Falstaff and Prince Hal from Shakespeare’s Henry lV.  The books are humorous, troubling, lyrical and fascinating.  Sally was the first child to go to University from West Sussex Social Service’s care system.  She now teaches Literature and Creative Writing at Oxford University.

“No-one writes like Sally Bayley” – Lemn Sissay.

AUTHOR DAY: Combined ticket for all three events on this day £24 or £10 for individual events
