Thursday 6th July 2023
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
We ﬁrst met Maureen as the wife of the eponymous hero in The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. Now, ten years later, award-winning author Rachel Joyce takes Maureen on her own, very diﬀerent, journey in Maureen Fry and the Angel of the North. Her tale unfolds as she struggles to bond with strangers and ﬁnds that once-familiar landscapes have changed dramatically. Rachel’s other international bestsellers include: Perfect, The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy, The Music Shop and Miss Benson’s Beetle. The ﬁlm of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, for which she also wrote the screenplay, was released in April and stars Jim Broadbent and Penelope Wilton.
