Breakfast Talk: Meet Bill Clegg

Breakfast Talk: Bill Clegg on Did You Ever Have A Family

STOCKHOLM | Wednesday 20th April 09:00

We are thrilled to introduce New York writer Bill Clegg, who will join us for breakfast in the Stockholm shop to discuss his bestselling debut novel Did You Ever Have a Family. Bill is one of New Yorks foremost literary agents, and the author of two previous memoirs.

Did You Ever Have a Family was longlisted for both The National Book Award and The Man Booker Prize. An elegant and heartrending story about a terrible tragedy, it’s also an unforgettable tale that reveals humanity at its best through forgiveness and hope. At its core the book is a celebration of family – the ones we are born with and the ones we create.
