About the Event
Frances Gibb, award-winning journalist, former legal editor of The Times and Aldeburgh resident, will talk about her book A Time and a Place: George Crabbe, Aldeburgh and Suffolk (2022). Her book considers eighteenth-century surgeon-apothecary and poet George Crabbe. She writes about his religious faith, romantic love, opium addiction and frequent creative struggles. Crabbe is well known for The Borough, a collection of poems arranged as letters and including ‘Peter Grimes’ (Letter XXII), the tale of a sadistic fisherman which inspired Benjamin Britten’s opera of the same name. Frances Gibb retired from her position at The Times in 2019 after nearly 40 years to focus on her own writing. She still contributes occasional freelance articles for The Times and for other publications including the Spectator and The Sunday Times. There’s more about Frances here
