04 An Evening with Dava Sobell

The Event

West Cork Literary Festival 2012, An evening with Dava Sobell in conversation with Lorna Siggins held at The Maritime Hotel in Bantry West Cork.  Another entertaining chat, this time with a lady  who brought 16th century scientific discovery to the masses.  Lorna Siggins (Irish Times) was the perfect foil - humorous, knowledgeable - a perfect evening.  Dava Sobell is the renowned author of 'Longitude' an amazing story of a clockmaker (Harrison) who singlehanded solved the problem of navigation for mariners - before the advent of GPS!!

And the Irish Navy joined us as well - a hugely enjoyable evening
