Fergal Keane OBE will join us at the Dorchester Literary Festival to talk about his latest book Wounds A Memoir of Love and War, a family story of a murder, blood and betrayal that tore an Irish town apart and causes men to be silent still.
A veteral foreign correspondent with BBC News, Fergal Keane's dispatches shape the way many viewers understand foreign affairs. Wounds draws on his 30 years global experience from frontlines, answering questions about his family's past, while examining human behaviour in the extremes of war.

Ian Mortimer The Time Traveller's Guide to Restoration Britain
If you could travel back in time, the period from 1660 to 1700 would make one of the most exciting destinations in history...
I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...
I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….
I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.
Going from strength to strength, well done!
We really enjoyed the talks we attended... and look forward to next year's event... Kate Adie was brilliant
Thank you very much for having me to the festival and making me feel so welcome.
