Today we’ve got an interview with the lovely Carl Gorham about his 2017 book The Owl at the Window: A Memoir of Loss and Hope. In it Carl writes about the loss of his wife and his attempts to rebuild his life with their six year old daughter. You have probably encountered Carl’s work on TV, such as with the animated series Stressed Eric and the CITV adaptation of Meg and Mog.

On the other end of the interview today is Hannah Garrard, our Learning & Participation Programme Manager. It’s a really wonderful interview about Carl’s approach to bereavement, and how the book emerged out of his own need to write through his grief.

Meanwhile, Steph and Simon take a look back at the Norfolk & Norwich Festival, the Nottwich UNESCO conference, the Walking Norwich book and the next big festival event: the Noirwich Crime Writing Festival.
