Kirsty Wark at Times+ Event
Times Building, London
02 Apr 2014
Times+ members can enjoy an evening Q&A with journalist, broadcaster and writer, Kirsty Wark.
Wark's latest book, The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle, tells the haunting story of Elizabeth Pringle, who is a familar yet solitary figure on the Scottish island of Arran. A dutiful daughter, an inspirational teacher, a gardener. But did anyone really know her? When Elizabeth dies, her will contains a surprise. She has left her home and her belongings to someone who is all but a stranger, a young mother she watched pushing a pram down the road more than thirty years ago.
Now it falls to Martha, the baby in that pram, to find out how her mother inherited the house in such strange circumstances, and in doing so, perhaps leave her own past behind. But first she has to find the answer to the question: who was Elizabeth Pringle?
Kirsty Wark hosts a variety of BBC programmes, including Newsnight and The Review Show and arts documentaries. She will be discussing her new novel with The Times journalist Emma Tucker.
