Mapp & Lucia, the wonderful world of Riseholme and Tilling: Guy Fraser-Sampson
Mon June 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Witty and entertaining speaker Guy Fraser-Sampson is the author of three Mapp and Lucia novels, all of which were optioned by the BBC.
He will be talking about the Cotswolds’ origins of the original stories and of the crazily eccentric loves and lives of their creator, E.F. Benson and his amazing family. Join us in “Riseholme” (Benson’s Broadway).
Guy Fraser-Sampson is a well known speaker at festivals around the country as well as making regular appearances on radio and television. Guy is the author of 15 books, including his Mapp and Lucia series which have been featured on Radio 4 and optioned by the BBC, as well as his Hampstead Murders contemporary detective stories. In his three acclaimed successor novels Guy traces the further exploits of E.F. Benson’s socially satirical rivals Mapp and Lucia in what are believed to be thinly disguised versions of Broadway and Rye.
