"Silver Spoons: Can you write without one?"
A lively debate chaired by Jonathan Dimbleby - jointly hosted by The RSL and First Story - Recorded on 23rd January 2014 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bloomsbury.
Panel: Poet Kate Fox, MP Alan Johnson, author Stephen Kelman and Salena Godden.
Here is a ten minute clip of Jonathan Dimbleby introducing Salena Godden. This piece of audio includes a short reading from 'Springfield Road' and their delightful conversation which begins with...
Jonathan Dimbleby "Salena Godden...you are described as the Mae West Madam of the salon, I'm not sure what that means, do you know what that means?"
Salena Godden "Come up and see me sometime..."
Thank you to all at RSL and First Story and a huge thank you to Jonathan Dimbleby who was so very warm and generous.
