Dame Joan Bakewell brings scandal and women’s rights to Clacton
12:00pm Saturday 26th October 2013 in News
Dame Joan Bakewell has drawn on her life experiences for both her fiction and biographical books, including her affair with playwright Harold Pinter and being one of the first female TV presenters.
A lot of attention was praised on Joan for her looks as well as her talent as an interviewer in the Sixties and beyond.
She was dubbed ‘the thinking man’s crumpet’ by humorist Frank Muir and the tag has never left her.
Joan will appear at the Princes Theatre in Clacton for the Clacton and North East Essex Arts and Literary Society on Monday 28 October at 7.30pm.
“I will discuss my three novels and how they illuminate my real life,” she said.
