Lavenham Literary Festival Dinner, 2023

On Friday the 17th November 2023 was the much loved Lavenham Literary Festival dinner, held at The Swan Hotel in Lavenham. Every year a three course meal is served while an invited author reads and talks about their work. In 2023, the guest author was Suffolk based journalist and writer Carla Carlisle, who spoke about her move from America to the U.K, her teaching in Paris, writing for The Washington Post and her monthly column in Country Life Magazine. She spoke passionately about American and British politics, reflected in her recent book Another Country, with topics ranging from Brexit, Trump and the pandemic. Alongside writing for Country Life Magazine, she runs Wyken Estate, a farm, restaurant and winery in Suffolk!
