||£3, including glass of wine
Award-winning author AL Kennedy presents a talk on creativity and madness, the subject of her recent BBC Radio 3 documentary, as part of the Love Arts 2012 festival. She will question the cliched link between madness and creativity, claiming that being true to oneself and exploring one's identity is integral to the making or performing of one's art - however perilous this can seem.
AL Kennedy is the author of 12 books: 5 novels, 5 books of short stories and 2 books of non-fiction. Her novel Day won the Costa Book of the Year in 2007 and her most recent work, The Blue Book, will be published in paperback in August 2012.
