Dawn French in Conversation

Part of Inside Out

Streaming from the Royal Festival Hall, the number one-bestselling author and comedian discusses her new novel, Because of You.

Dawn French gives you the inside scoop on her arresting page-turner about mothers and daughters, love and loss, mistakes and regret.

Taking on the age-old debate of nature vs nurture, French’s latest novel, arriving five years after her last, is a meditation on motherhood and what makes us who we are.

Expect a conversation suffused with French's signature humour and warmth.

Presented in partnership with Penguin Live.
