New Audio / Jonathan Dimbleby and Salena Godden / 'Silver Spoons' RSL and First Story debate

Monday, 3 February 2014

"Silver Spoons: Can you write without one?" lively debate hosted by The Royal Society of Literature and First Story.

This audio recorded on 23rd January 2014 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bloomsbury.

Well, here’s a treat for your ears, its a short and sweet 10minute clip of Jonathan Dimbleby introducing Salena Godden, including a reading from 'Springfield Road' and some of their delightful conversation, which begins with…

Jonathan Dimbleby "Salena Godden…you are described as the Mae West Madam of the salon, I’m not sure what that means, do you know what that means?”

Salena Godden "Come up and see me sometime…"

Shared with love and thanks to all at the RSL, to the fantastic First Story team and Jonathan Dimbleby who, as you will hear for yourselves, was so very charming and warm and generous. "Too much of a good thing...can be wonderful!" See you all soon!
