An evening with Paterson Joseph
October 31 @ 19:00 – 22:00
As part of the 2023 Farsley Literature Festival we are thrilled to announce an evening with beloved British actor and writer, Paterson Joseph. Recently seen on Vigil and Noughts and Crosses, he has also starred in Peep Show and Law & Order UK and he plays Arthur Slugworth in the forthcoming Wonka movie.
The Secret Diaries of Charles Ignatius Sanchois is Paterson’s debut novel.
It’s 1746 and Georgian London is not a safe place for a young Black man, especially one who has escaped slavery. After the twinkling lights in the Fleet Street coffee shops are blown out and the great houses have closed their doors for the night, Sancho must dodge slave catchers and worse. The man he hoped would help – a kindly duke who taught him to write – is dying.
This event is part of 2023 Farsley Literature Festival.
Doors open at 7pm, event starts at 8pm.
