Felixstowe Book Festival 27-28 June 2015
Jackamans supported the Esther Freud event on the Saturday at the Orwell Hotel.
Acclaimed author Esther Freud talked about her latest book, Mr Mac and Me. This, Esther’s eighth novel, was chosen by Libby Purves as one of her novels of the year for 2014. In the book, Esther steps back to 1914 – the year that the great Scottish architect and designer Charles Rennie Macintosh and his artist wife Margaret MacDonald spent in Walberswick.
Esther Freud trained as an actress before writing her first novel, Hideous Kinky, which was shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. The book was made into a feature film.
Ruth Jenkins, Jackamans' Family Consultant took tea with Esther Freud after the talk.
