Gateway to Heaven

Clare Summerskill

Sunday 13th October 14:20 - 15:20 | Northwood House

Out On An Island is delighted to bring Clare Summerskill to the Red Funnel Isle of Wight Literary Festival.

Summerskill has vast experience as a writer, actor and stand up comedienne and will talk candidly about her process of publishing Gateway to Heaven, how it became a film version for Age Concern (now Age UK) as well as her other books and theatre projects, including Staying Out Late and Queens’ Evidence. Summerskill will also present deeply moving and occasionally hilarious extracts from the project’s contributors’ oral histories.

‘Out On An Island’ is a community heritage project recording LGBTQ+ oral histories with an Isle of Wight connection over the last 100 years. It is produced by StoneCrabs charity with the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Like Gateway to Heaven, our project encourages islanders to share their memories, hard-won wisdom and memorabilia at risk of going unrecorded.

This talk is for everyone, from students of social and oral history or queer studies to the general reader.
