Our afternoon tea hosted by Jane Wenham-Jones is about the transformative power of literature. Join journalist Lucy Mangan with her memoir of childhood reading, Bookworm, and writer and critic Laura Freeman, whose The Reading Cure charts how delicious descriptions of food, from Woolf’s bread and biscuits to Robert Graves’ greengages, tempted her slowly back from anorexia. These two brilliant authors will delve into the childhood worlds and stories that made us all fall in love with books.
