She has adapted novels by John Updike, Elizabeth Jane Howard, Sebastian Faulks and non-fiction by Norman Lewis, Flora Fraser, and Debra Kogan. Her original screenplays and treatments have won awards, been optioned, and developed. Her short film ‘The Lemon Tree’ won awards at Mesnil-le-Roi, Malta and San Sebastian films festivals. Her background before film school was in theatre.
The seminar will start at 5 for 5.15pm and take place on the CRASSH premises, followed by a Q&A.
