Festival talks by Rick Gekoski

79. WILLIAM GOLDING

Generously sponsored by

As part of our Chalke Valley History Heroes series, writer and critic Rick Gekoski takes a look at Sir William Golding, author of Lord of the Flies and other classics, as well as winner of both the Booker and the Nobel Prize for Literature. A former resident of Bowerchalke, he also taught at Bishop Wordsworth’s School and is rightly feted as one of our greatest novelists.

This is part of our series of talks on the Chalke Valley History Heroes – look out for the others on John Aubrey, Cecil Beaton, Anthony Eden, Henry Lamb and Terry Pratchett.
