Dawn French in Conversation

Join Dawn French as she talks about her game-changing, Women’s Prize longlisted fourth novel, Because of You, which received an overwhelming response from readers and critics alike, who fell in love with this wise and heart-breaking book.

At the heart of Because of You are two very different families, whose lives are suddenly entwined when a baby goes missing. When, seventeen years later, long-held secrets are revealed, the power of mother-love is tested to its limits.

Dawn’s first three novels, A Tiny Bit Marvellous, Oh Dear Silvia and According to Yes are all Sunday Times bestsellers. Her number one bestselling memoir, Dear Fatty, was published to critical acclaim in 2008, and Me. You. A Diary, was a number one Sunday Times bestseller in 2018. She has appeared in some of this country’s most loved and cherished shows, including French and Saunders, The Vicar of Dibley, and Jam and Jerusalem.

Dawn French lives in Cornwall and has been the Chancellor of Falmouth University since 2015.
