Chorleywood LitFest: Gerry Hanson – November 17, 2012

Saturday 17th November – 3pm

Gerry Hanson at the Chorleywood Literary Festival

This lovingly compiled ode to England is an eclectic anthology of poetry, prose and song with contributions as varied as Dickens, Shakespeare and Churchill alongside articles and satire from personalities like Paxman, Alan Coren and John Mortimer, Bill Bryson’s joyful love-letter to Marmite, Crumpets and stinging nettles. With chapters on heritage, language, the unrivalled beauty of English gardens and passions such as St George, the War of the Roses and The Royals, this patriotic gem of a book is a delight for all.

Trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, a former chairman of the Polite Society and Campaign for Courtesy, Gerry Hanson is also a freelance writer and regular and accomplished TV and radio broadcaster with appearances on the BBC and commercial radio. Guaranteed to charm and entertain you in this Diamond Jubilee year. All royalties from the book are donated to charities supported by the St George’s Day Club. After his talk and answering questions from the audience Gerry will be signing his book.
