Rossiter Books- Self Portrait of a Young Man by Sir Roy Strong
Wednesday 25th September at 7pm, The Shire Hall, MonmouthTicket £5 (£3 redeemable against book)It’s a great pleasure to welcome back one of the most celebrated visionaries of our time, Sir Roy Strong.
For nearly half a century, Sir Roy Strong has enjoyed a high public profile in the arts world in Britain and is without doubt one of the most celebrated visionaries of our time. Yet remarkably little is known about his life before the Swinging Sixties when he burst upon the scene as the revolutionary trendy young director of the National Portrait Gallery, aged thirty-one.
In this book he recounts for the first time the story of his social origins and the roots of his life-long passion for the culture and history of England.
Self-Portrait as a Young Man explores his childhood influences, his early encounters with theatre and opera and his sometimes turbulent family relationships.
