Lucy Mangan: Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading

Durham Town Hall


  • 13th October, 4.30pm–5.30pm

When Lucy Mangan was little, stories were everything. They opened up new worlds and cast light on all the complexities she encountered in this one.

She was whisked away to Narnia – and Kirrin Island – and Wonderland. She ventured down rabbit holes and womble burrows into midnight gardens and chocolate factories. She wandered the countryside with Milly-Molly-Mandy,  and played by the tracks with the Railway Children. With  Charlotte’s Web  she discovered Death and with Judy Blume it was Boys.

Join Lucy as she revisits old favourites and also recommends a few forgotten treasures to inspire bookworms everywhere and set them on their way.

Lucy Mangan is a columnist for Stylist, a Guardian writer, and the author of several books.
