Manchester Literature Festival
In his captivating debut novel, ‘The Secret Diaries of Charles Ignatius Sancho’, much-loved actor Paterson Joseph tells a story hidden for 300 years. An attempt ‘to correct the colour-balance that has allowed an historical distortion of British history to exist’ and ‘to add to the growing canon of Black Historical Fiction’ as entertaining as any of the revered classics.
A star of stage and screen, Paterson is best known for his roles in Casualty, Peep Show and Green Wing amongst many others. He recently appeared in the BBC series Vigil and as Kamal Hadley in the adaptation of Malorie Blackman’s ‘Noughts + Crosses’. Hosted by broadcaster and Literary Editor Ellah P. Wakatama.
