Book Festival: Caspar Walsh - Tribe Warrior
Save event

In 2013, 200,000 children in the UK will have a parent in prison. Six out of ten boys with a father in prison will end up in custody themselves.

A new work of fiction from Caspar Walsh, the author of Criminal, explores the impact of modern day tribe warfare on society.

Tribe Warrior  uses Britain's dark past to explore the impact of absent, imprisoned fathers on their children and UK society.

Caspar uses his lifelong experience in criminal rehabilitation to tell the story of our country's current crisis of fatherless youth and where hope for the future may lie.

Caspar Walsh is a writer and founder of the award winning charity, Write to Freedom.

Location: Jill Craigie Cinema, Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University.

Free admission.
