The Story Museum is proud to present Shelf Life, a series of evening events featuring a host of favourite household names, exploring the books and stories that have stayed with them throughout their lives.
For many of us, the books that remain on our bookshelf often have their own stories to tell about the role they have played in our lives. This treasured collection often reflects the many parts to us, including our upbringing, our passions and our guilty pleasures. In this unique series of events, Nicolette Jones (Sunday Times children’s literary editor) discovers the books that sit on the shelves of some Britain’s best-loved and celebrated personalities.
For the latest in the series, explore the bookshelf of American folk singer and activist Peggy Seeger. Discover the books she loves, the books she would recommend and the books that have changed her life.
