A N Wilson   Charles Darwin - Victorian Mythmaker

A radical reappraisal of Charles Darwin from the bestselling author of Victoria: Charles Darwin is much more than the account of a charming, shy, rich naturalist. A N Wilson brings a deep understanding of Victorian times to  examine the most controversial scientist of modern times. He will discuss his ground breaking book at the Dorchester Literary Festival on Friday 20th October.

Feedback From 2016 Festival

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.
