Sound editor Al reports on Isla Blair’s recent promotional appearance at the Chiswick Book Festival …
We were thrilled to be at the annual Chiswick Book Festival (CBF) in London at the weekend to see Isla Blair discussing her memoir, “A Tiger’s Wedding”, where Isla discussed the book with her son, actor Jamie Glover.
The CBF gets better every year, with established authors conducting seminars alongside budding authors who may be promoting their debut titles. It is a three day event and attracts large audiences for the many workshops and events it holds.
A packed Tabard Theatre witnessed an enthralling hour with Isla and Jamie and it was very interesting to hear Isla being quizzed about the book, research, family history and much more - as always, Isla answered honestly, passionately and captivatingly - it reminded me of the strength of the audio version of “A Tiger’s Wedding” where Isla’s narration really brings the book to life.
If you get the chance, do go along to see/meet/hear Isla at these future events - “A Tiger’s Wedding” is going from strength to strength in all formats, and Isla gives so much when she speaks – it’s something not to be missed! – Al Muirden
