2014 Literary Festival Programme Confirmed

Simpson and ioggy botchevThe last speaker for the Annual Frinton Literary Festival has just been confirmed.  BBC foreign affairs producer, Oggy Boytchev, completes our great line-up this year.  His eagerly-awaited debut title ‘Simpson & I’ lifts the lid on the untold stories behind the headlines and documents some of the most memorable reports ever to appear on BBC News and documents Boytchev’s turbulent relationship with the BBC’s World Affairs Editor, John Simpson.  For over a decade, the pair worked side-by-side in some of the world’s most dangerous locations  in what was arguably one of the most successful partnerships in modern journalism. Simpson calls the book “a delightful account of our co-operation on the road”.   For further details, see our Festival Page or visit www.frintonliteraryfestival.co.uk.
