Lesley Thomson speaks at the Lewes Speakers Festival
Lesley at the Lewes Speakers Festival

To a full house, on a July evening in Lewes last year, I interviewed bestselling writer and founder of the Orange Prize  for Fiction (now Baileys).  We discussed Kate’s most recent novel, Citadel and her other work.  Kate talked about her passion for women’s fiction and how exciting it is that the prize has, with its new sponsor, come of age.
