Renowned broadcaster - latest high profile speaker at Skipton hotel

[Wednesday 14 June 2006]

AUTHOR and broadcaster Kate Adie is set to visit the Yorkshire Dales next week when she will speak at a literary dinner being held at Skipton's Rendezvous Hotel.

Awarded an OBE in 1993 Kate Adie is an inspirational woman who has become a familiar figure through her work as Chief News Correspondent for the BBC and as presenter of Radio 4's "From Our Own Correspondent".

The event, on Wednesday 21st June at 7.30pm, is just the latest high profile speaker to entertain audiences at the venue and includes a three course meal and the opportunity to hear Kate talking about her best selling book 'Nobody's Child'.

Inspired by her own adoption, the extraordinary and moving story is an insight into the lives of abandoned children across the world as they grown into adulthood.

Also speaking at the event is Yorkshire born Peter Robinson, the award winning crime writer and creator of the Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks novels.

Peter emigrated to Canada in the early 1970's and is now living in Toronto, so this is a rare opportunity to meet this entertaining writer on his home soil.

Tickets for the literary dinner, at £24 per head, are available from the Rendezvous Hotel on 01756 700100.
