Our Next Event
Alan Johnson, MP and Former Home Secretary Will Introduce and Sign, The Long and Winding Road at The Spirella Ballroom
Sunday 11 December 2016
The third volume of Alan Johnson's bestselling and award-winning memoirs takes us to the
corridors of Westminster and lifts the lid on the life of a hard-working constituency MP.
When Tony Blair brought Alan Johnson into Parliament in 1997, it was something of a culture shock. Blair famously said to him 'Oh, so you really are working class aren't you'. But Alan eventually took to the corridors of power as to the manner born, fuelled by his passionately held principles and his loyalty to his constituents in Hull West and Hessle. But this is no self-aggrandising memoir of politicking and skulduggery. In the bestselling tradition of This Boy and Please, Mister Postman, Alan's honesty and authenticity shine through every engaging word. Prepare to see Westminster as you've never seen it before.
Alan Johnson was born in May 1950. He is a British Labour Party politician who served as Home Secretary from June 2009 to May 2010. Before that, he filled a wide variety of cabinet positions in both the Blair and Brown governments, including Health Secretary and Education Secretary. Until 20 January 2011 he was Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer. Johnson has been the Member of Parliament for Hull West and Hessle since 1997.
The Spirella Ballroom is located on Bridge Road in Letchworth (SG6 4ET). Tickets are £16.99 and include a copy of the hardback book or £20 for a pair of tickets and one copy of the book.
