More appearances, signings etc

Over the next couple of months I'm going to be making a few festival and one-off appearances, mainly to discuss Field of Shadows. Here's a few dates for your diary. If you're in the vicinity, please come along!

October 23rd, London Sportswriting Festival

14:00-15:00: CRICKET AND WAR
'We know about the place that football played in wartime but how many of us knew that cricket too had a role.  Dan Waddell’s book, Field of Shadows, gives us a unique insight into the subject during the 1914-18 war.  The very idea of a cricket tour taking place in Germany as Hitler’s power rose seems almost imaginary and yet it happened. Join Dan Waddell, the author of Field of Shadows: The English Cricket Tour of Nazi Germany in discussion with Andrew Renshaw, the editor of Wisden on the Great War:  the Lives of Cricket’s Fallen 1914-1918.  Hosted by writer and broadcaster Lizzie Ammon.'

'Join John Crace, Dan Waddell and Robert Winder, all contributors to the acclaimed cricket quarterly The Nightwatchman in a lighthearted and irreverent discussion on our great summer sport. To be chaired by Tom Holland.'
