Shoreham Wordfest presents The Private Life Of The Diary-Sally Bayley

“From Pepys to Tweets,” Sally Bayley has written an entertaining and informative review of diaries – why do we keep them, what do they tell us about ourselves and the famous diarists such as Samuel Pepys, Virginia Woolf and many a politician, whose innermost thoughts we discover from their journals?

Sally includes her own memoirs along with extracts from Pepys, Woolf, Orwell, Wilde and even Adrian Mole.Sally was a great hit at our 2021 Wordfest with her novels Girl With Dove and No Boys Play Here. Her third novel is due next year.
