Erica Wagner

Erica-Wagner-First-LightJoin author and editor Erica Wagner for a special lunch at the Talbot Hotel where she will be sharing with you a unique insight into the world behind the book pages of newspapers and glossy magazines as well as her own impressive writing career.

She has interviewed authors and celebrities from all walks of life — from Margaret Atwood to Hilary Mantel, from Neil Armstrong to Harry Belafonte (and not forgetting Harrison Ford…) For 17 years literary editor of The Times, and twice a judge of the Man Booker prize, she is now a contributing writer for the New Statesman and consulting literary editor for Harper’s Bazaar.

She is the author of Gravity: Stories; Ariel’s Gift: Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath and the Story of Birthday Letters and Seizure, a novel. Pas de Deux/A Concert of Stories, co-written with storyteller Abbi Patrix and musician and composer Linda Edsjö, tours around the world.

First Light: A Celebration of Alan Garner, has just been published by Unbound, and her biography of Washington Roebling, chief engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge, will be published by Bloomsbury in 2017. www.ericawagner.co.uk @EricaWgnr
