Alexander Masters is an author, screenwriter, and worker with the homeless and lives in Cambridge.
He is the writer and illustrator of "Stuart: A Life Backwards", the biography of Stuart Shorter. It explores how a young boy, somewhat disabled from birth, became mentally unstable, criminal and violent, living homeless on the streets of Cambridge. The book won many prizes and was filmed in 2006 for the BBC and HBO.
Alex will tell us how to find the story in a life and reflect on the frequent gap between expectations and reality in our lives.
