An Evening with Alan Johnson

We’re delighted to welcome one of our bestloved politicians back to Durham Book Festival this year. Alan Johnson is a Labour party MP who served as Home Secretary and filled a wide variety of cabinet positions in the Brown and Blair governments. The third volume of Alan’s memoirs, The Long and Winding Road, takes us to the corridors of Westminster and lifts the lid on the life of a hard-working constituency MP. Following in the bestselling tradition of This Boy and Please, Mister Postman, Alan’s honesty and authenticity shine though the book. Prepare to hear about Westminster as you’ve never done before.
