CORONA VIRUS UPDATE :

It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

Where To Find Me 

ONLINE BOOKING FOR THIS EVENT HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE TO BOOK ON THE DOOR OF THE EVENT (30 MINUTES PRIOR TO START TIME, CASH PURCHASES ONLY).

Alba Arikha was born and raised in Paris, in an artistic household. Her father was the painter Avigdor Arikha, her mother is the poet Anne Atik. Her godfather none other than playwright Samuel Beckett. She studied the piano for many years before turning to writing and now splits her time between her books and performing as a singer-songwriter.

Her memoir, Major/Minor, about her adolescence in Paris, was shortlisted for the Spear’s Award and selected among the best books of 2012 by The New Yorker. Her last book, a narrative poem, Soon, was set to music and performed as an opera at the Riverside Studios, London.

Where To Find Me is an inspiring account of how to face and overcome the effects of loss and tragedy in our daily life. Hannah Karalis, a teenager living with her family in 1980s Notting Hill, becomes fascinated by her neighbour, Flora Dobbs, an enigmatic elderly woman who has clearly had an interesting past – but the improbable friendship that the two strike up is abruptly cut short by Flora’s sudden departure from the neighbourhood. Eighteen years later, Hannah is astonished to receive a black notebook, which sets her on a quest to discover the truth and to confront the ghosts of an unresolved past.
