Fergal Keane  Wounds

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.
