DEBORAH MOGGACH talk on ‘Adventures in the Screen Trade’

To be held at:  St. Thomas a Becket Church, Huntington

Huntington is very lucky to have the acclaimed author Deborah Moggach, be the final speaker in this year’s series of events.  She is of course the author of  ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ and ‘Tulip Fever’ as well as 18 other books.  She will be telling the story of her life in relation to her success as an author. She has also adapted many of her novels as TV dramas and has also written acclaimed adaptations of other people’s work, including Nancy Mitford, ‘Love in a Cold Climate’, ’The Diary of Anne Frank’ and the film ‘Pride and Prejudice’, starring Keira Knightly, for which she was awarded a BAFTA nomination.  

Now happily married and living in Presteigne, she will tell of the story of her Hollywood visits to Steven Speilberg , who originally bought  ‘Tulip Fever’ and the bizarre experiences she witnessed there.

The stories of life in Hollywood to the writings of her many novels, tackling family life, divorce, children and the confusions and disappointments of relationships, will fascinate listeners.  

Deborah has had a rich and varied life and her talk will be full of amusing anecdotes and startling surprises, which one could only have believed happened in Hollywood and as her life as a famous author.

She will be answering questions after her talk and the evening will finish with a free canapés and wine party after the event.
