with Alan Judd
Saturday 6th October 2.00pm – 3.00pm
Ian Williams will discuss his 20 years as a foreign correspondent in China and the Far East, how he has drawn from this experience in writing his debut novel, and why he chose to develop it into a work of fiction. The novel contains plenty of cyber skullduggery, and with cyber security such a pressing (and scary) issue, he will also look at the challenge of writing about it in an engaging and accessible way.
Formerly a correspondent with Channel 4 News and NBC, Ian describes his recently published first novel, Beijing Smog, as a satire on modern China. Ian Williams will be discussing cyber skullduggery with Alan Judd, the awardwinning novelist and biographer.
This session will be limited to 30 people and will be held upstairs in the Queen’s Hall
