Michael Morpurgo In Conversation, Seamus Heaney Homeplace
Sunday, 30th April 2017
Former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo discovered his vocation while working as a primary schoolteacher in Kent, where he 'ran out of other writers' stories to read' and started making his own. A staggering 140 titles later, he is one of the most successful children's authors in Britain and the award-winning author of War Horse, the 1982 novel that became a huge international stage hit.
Over the years Morpurgo has counted many writers among his friends, including Ted Hughes and Seamus Heaney, and for this special event he talks about his work, his love of poetry, and Heaney himself.
