Pat Barker will be in conversation with Dr Anne Whitehead about her work and will be signing books. This will be followed by a screening of Stanley and Iris, a film loosely based on her early novel Union Street, starring Jane Fonda and Robert de Niro. A struggling widow falls in love with an illiterate short-order cook whom she teaches to read and write in her kitchen each night. This event is programmed by Hexham Book Festival. The ticket price includes admission to both events which are part of the Wide Skies Film Festival.
