permalink Indeed,
Letters Live was absolutely extraordinary.

They never announce who's reading in advance, or what the letters will be.

We got funny stuff, incredibly moving, even gruelling stuff, famous letter writers, ordinary people. Letters by Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo, Toni Morrison, Marcel Proust, Patti Smith, Roald Dahl, Emmeline Pankhurst, the Queen Mother and many more, including an Austalian bloke who claimed to have eaten more kinds of meat than anyone else.

Read by Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberbatch, Asim Choudry, Alan Carr, Jude Law, Florence Welch, Taika Waititi, Louise Brealey, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Olivia Coleman among others.

What an extraordinary evening.
