No One Round Here Reads Tolstoy 

Hexham Abbey: The Great Hall
Sunday 19 June: 1.15pm
Tickets: £8, £6

Mark’s memoir of growing up a working-class lad during the 1970s and 1980s. 

No One Round Here Reads Tolstoy is about schools (bad), music (good) and the people (some mad, a few sane), and pre-eminently and profoundly the books and authors (some bad, mostly good) that led the way, and shaped his life. It’s also about a family who just didn’t see the point of reading, and a troubled grandad who, in his own way, taught Mark the power of stories.  

Mark is interviewed by Sheilagh Matheson.
