Howard Jacobson & Melvyn Bragg

Jewish Book Week

Booker-winner Howard Jacobson reflects on his childhood and career to date with broadcaster and parliamentarian, Melvyn Bragg.

As Jewish Book Week celebrates its 70th anniversary one of the festival’s favourite speakers marks a milestone of his own as he turns 80 this summer.

In Mother’s Boy, Howard Jacobson explores belonging and not-belonging, being an insider and an outsider, both English and Jewish. Full of his trademark humour, this much-anticipated memoir also reveals how the Booker-winner became a writer. He will discuss his childhood and career to date with author, broadcaster and parliamentarian Melvyn Bragg.

In Memory of Dr David Cohen CBE
