A Talk by Matthew Parris about his New Book ‘Fracture’

Front cover of Matthew Parris' new book 'Fracture'.

We were delighted that Matthew Parris agreed to come to Boughton House to talk about his latest book, Fracture, which evolved from his BBC Radio 4 programme Great Lives.   

It was fascinating to learn how many people who go on to lead exceptional lives have had traumatic childhoods.  The cover of the book illustrates some of the people  he sudies in the book and discussed further during the talk.

The talk was held in The Tapestry Hall by kind permission of the Duke of Buccleuch, with all profits going to The Wild Camel Protection Foundation.
