blinkbox Books presents an entertaining and intimate show featuring Clare Balding in conversation with some of Britain’s best loved writers, discussing their current book, previous works and a variety of personal experiences.
For this Saturday matinee, Clare welcomes comedy writer, journalist, radio presenter and screenwriter Danny Baker to speak about his upcoming autobiography, Going Off Alarming: The Autobiography: Vol 2, published in September. Baker is no stranger to voicing an opinion and has been sharing his take on sport, entertainment and popular culture on both radio and TV for over a quarter of a century.
Clare will also be joined by satirical comic Paul Merton to talk about his upbringing in working-class Fulham, run-ins with nuns during his school days, and other stories from his long awaited autobiography, Only When I Laugh, also released in September.
As Clare herself says, ‘It is fantastic that blinkbox Books are connecting the readers with authors in this way and these events are a unique chance for readers and authors to share their thoughts and experiences. I’m thrilled to be involved in what I hope will be intimate, illuminating and intriguing conversations allowing readers to discover more about their beloved authors.’
