St Cross College

£7 - £12.50

Director David Cohen introduces the first showing of his 30-minute film, A North Norfolk Man, about the writer and poet Kevin Crossley-Holland and how his writing is rooted in his Norfolk home. The showing will be followed by readings and discussion about writing and place between Cohen, Crossley-Holland and another Norfolk writer, Richard Mabey.

Cohen is a psychologist, bestselling author and documentary filmmaker. His film for ITV on the Soham murders, When Holly Went Missing, was nominated for a Bafta. His books include Freud on Coke, The Escape of Sigmund Freud, Diana: Death of a Goddess and Great Psychologists as Parents.

Crossley-Holland is well known for his children’s books including The Seeing Stone, which won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Award. He won the prestigious Carnegie Medal for Storm and was shortlisted for Gatty’s Tale. He has also translated Beowulf from the Anglo-Saxon and written nine collections of poetry including The Breaking Hour.

Mabey is a writer and broadcaster with a particular passion for nature and culture. He presented several television wildlife documentaries in the 70s and 80s, and wrote and narrated the 1996 BBC series Postcards from the Country. His book, Nature Cure, described his recovery from depression in the context of man’s relationship with landscape and nature.

This event lasts 90 minutes.
