The Rex Cinema, Berkhamstead (30 minutes from London Euston)
Kathy Lette, comes to The Rex for an evening of readings and conversation. The internationally bestselling author will read from and talk about the inspiration behind her novel and soon-to-be Hollywood film, The Boy Who Fell to Earth.
It’s the tale of a single mum raising a child with Aspergers Syndrome, with all the heartache and hilarity that entails. And Kathy should know, since her own son is on the autism spectrum.
Kathy will be in conversation with Sunnyside patron, Emma Claire Sweeney. Emma’s own novel, Owl Song at Dawn, is inspired by her sister, who has cerebral palsy and autism.
Kathy and Emma will be joined by poets from Sunnyside Rural Trust, whose work has been published in The Memoir Garden: poems from the words and experiences of adults with learning disabilities.
In Aid of Sunnyside Rural Trust, a Dacorum-based social enterprise, which trains adults with learning disabilities to work in horticulture.
