Grantchester: Before and After with James Runcie

  • Course Dates: Wed 10 April, 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Join Sarum College Bookshop for the launch of James Runcie’s latest book, The Road to Grantchester.

The origin story of Grantchester’s beloved Archdeacon Sidney Chambers, The Road to Grantchester is a superb portrait of post-war Britain and the generation who rebuilt it; and the touching story of one young man finding his place in the world.

James Runcie is an award-winning film-maker, Commissioning Editor for Arts at BBC Radio 4, and the author of ten novels. Sidney Chambers and The Shadow of Death was published in 2012, soon followed five more in the Grantchester Mysteries series.

In 2014, ITV launched Grantchester, a prime-time series starring James Norton. The fourth series of Grantchester will air in Spring 2019. He lives in Edinburgh.

“Runcie has the gift of a born storyteller” – Daily Mail

“He is the simple chronicler of English post-war life, using irony and understatement to lay bare the pathos of ordinary lives” – Sunday Telegraph

Tickets for this evening are £4 which includes refreshments. Advance booking is required. Contact Sarum College Bookshop on 01722 326899 or email bookshop@sarum.ac.uk.
