An Evening with Joan Bakewell

 

Broadcaster and journalist Joan Bakewell comes to Tacchi-Morris this May. Her impressive presenting credits are as wide ranging as Sky Arts’ Portrait Artist of the Year, Radio 4’s Inside the Ethics Committee and BBC1 Panorama specials, including Our Dirty Nation, Old, Drunk and Disorderly?, in which she investigated the hidden problem of alcohol abuse in older people, and The Generation Game, in which she explored the challenges ahead in caring for an ageing population.


Joan’s particular areas of interest are the arts, religion, and old age. She was BBC television’s arts correspondent throughout the 80’s, and was later on the board of the National Theatre and Friends of the Tate. She is currently Chair of The National Campaign for the Arts. She was also the government appointed Voice of the Older People between 2008 and 2010.

 

Joan has written six books including She’s Leaving Home, All The Nice Girls, The View From Here: Life at Seventy, Belief and The Centre of the Bed. Her latest book is Stop the Clocks – Thoughts on What I Leave Behind, a series of essays on how the world has changed and all that she has lived through. 

 

She writes for various national broadsheets including The Guardian, The Independent and The Telegraph.



In this dynamic evening, Joan will be chatting about her life before taking audience questions in the second half. There will also be a chance to get your books signed by Joan at the end of the evening.
