Doreen Cunningham will be in conversation with Blake Morrison
From the lagoons of Mexico to Arctic glaciers, grey whale mothers are swimming with their calves, past predatory orcas, through a warming sea. For ten thousand miles, they endure one of the longest mammalian migrations on the planet. Following them, by bus, train and ferry, are Doreen Cunningham and her young son Max, in pursuit of a wild hope: that their family of two can make it by themselves.
Doreen has worked for the BBC World Service variously as an international news presenter, editor, producer and reporter, since 2000. She won the RSL Giles St Aubyn Award 2020 and was shortlisted for the Eccles Centre and Hay Festival Writers Award 2021 for Soundings, her first book.
Doreen will be in conversation with Professor Blake Morrison. This is a free, in-person event, that is also being live-streamed. Please register for the live-stream via the link below. If you are planning on attending in person, there is no need to register.
