Trevor Fishlock – A Gift of Sunlight, 12 April …

Trevor Fishlock – A Gift of Sunlight
Sun 12 April, 2.30pm, National Waterfront Museum

We welcome author, broadcaster and foreign correspondent Trevor Fishlock for a fascinating talk on his recent book dedicated to the lives of the famous Davies sisters.

Shy and fabulously wealthy, they poured their fortune into charity and famously collected a magical trove of paintings which they bequeathed to the Welsh nation.

However, for all their fortune and privilege, they lived lives honed by shyness and self-denial, and haunted by love…

Trevor has worked on assignment in more than seventy countries and was staff correspondent of The Times in India and New York, and Moscow bureau chief for The Daily Telegraph. He has written books on Wales, India, Russia, America and on nineteenth-century exploration, and has presented more than 150 television programmes about life and history in Wales.

You’ll also have the chance to buy Trevor’s book – A Gift of Sunlight from the Museum’s shop and have it signed by Trevor himself from 3.30pm onwards.
