William Fiennes

W_Fiennes_BookAuthor William Fiennes comes to  Ampleforth College for an evening of music and discussion about his wonderful book, The Music Room.

Praise for The Music Room:

Fiennes has exceptional gifts, and he has written a small masterpiece, a powerful tribute to place, family and memory.” Sunday Telegraph

It is not often that another person’s memories move into one’s own mind and inhabit it almost as though they were one’s own.” Literary Review

A thoughtful and lyrical account of an extraordinary childhood.Guardian

35An exceptionally honest, beautifully-written and observed memoir of a strange childhood, touching in its description of a situation about which, while others might have moaned, appears to have been simply accepted and absorbed, as best it could, into daily life. This is no misery memoir. It is a memoir full of curiosity and affection.Independent

Please note that the date and times for this event are still to be confirmed.
