Alan Johnson

In the fourth of seven York Literature Festival events taking place at St Peter’s, guests were treated with the wit and wisdom of Alan Johnson, former Home Secretary and acclaimed author.

Exploring his latest work, In My Life: A Music Memoir, Alan took the audience back to his youth with a selection of heartfelt stories and anecdotes from his life in London as a child through to a young adult, looking at his love of music and some of the songs that shaped him growing up.

Ben Fuller, Head of Politics and organiser of the public lecture events at St Peter’s School, said: “It has been a lovely afternoon with Alan Johnson. Alan has great skill in speaking to both young and old with the captivating power of conjuring up both the images and sounds of his youth.”
