Novelist and scriptwriter Jane Rogers, who will appear at Banbury’s Literary Live festival, is currently recording a new radio drama starring David Tennant.

Jane has adapted two stories by Robert Louis Stevenson, for Radio 4’s Classic Serial. Tennant plays the hero in the first, and narrates the second.

Jane said: “The casts of both plays are excellent but David is a radio producer’s dream. He can read pages of narration without a single hesitation or fluff, and he brings the text vividly to life. Plus, he’s incredibly modest and funny.”

You can see Jane Rogers, Carnegie medal nominee Miriam Moss and a host of other speakers at Banbury Literary Live at North Oxfordshire Academy on November 20.
