Author Judith Heneghan will be in conversation with television and film director Tim Fywell about her latest novel Birdeye.

Birdeye is a novel about 67-year-old Liv who has lived a full life in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. Her twin daughters have grown up, she has survived breast cancer, and she is the founder of the Birdeye Colony that has welcomed numerous wanderers for over 40 years. Now Birdeye is well past its heyday, but Liv resists what others see as its inevitable collapse.

Birdeye shows us what the hippy dream looks like fifty years on, when the secrets which were masked by free spirit and a determined nonconformism force their way to the surface.

Judith is a Hampshire-based writer who teaches creative writing at Winchester University and is the director of Winchester Writers' Festival. 

Tim Fywell is an award-winning television and film director whose work includes the movies I Capture The Castle, and Ice Princess, and the television dramas Happy Valley, River, Cracker, The English Game and Grantchester; he is also a passionate reader of fiction.
