7:30pm - 9:00pm - Saturday 10 June
One of the UK's most popular writer/performers, Jenny Eclair was the first woman to win the prestigious Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has many TV and radio credits to her name and four critically acclaimed novels.
Her latest, Listening In, is a short story collection, based on the BBC Radio 4 series, Little Lifetimes. Twenty very different women reach a pivotal moment in their lives: behind each woman lies a gripping tale - of betrayal, of love, of hope and defiance. Funny, heart-breaking, inspiring - and packed with wicked one liners - this wonderful collection shows Jenny Eclair's exceptional talent for observation at its very best.
Jenny will be in conversation with Anne Davies from BBC East Midlands Today.
