David Hilton-Barber
David Hilton-Barber has a decade-long career in researching, compiling and writing family histories. In his informative and inspiring workshop, he shares his wealth of knowledge with those who believe they have their own true tales to tell. A writer of non-fiction historical works who, while not being in the same league as TV Bulpin and AP Cartwright, is following closely in their footsteps. He has edited, written and published 10 books which, he says, reflect the maxim of George Cory, an  historian whose name is embodied in the Cory Library at Rhodes University:

It is no more than the grateful duty of a succeeding generation to revere the memory of those who bore the heat and burden of the days long gone. But better than merely holding in one’s memories of departed heroes is the placing on permanent record the account of their lives and works.

At this year’s festival David will be talking about his own book, in conversation with his daughter Bridget, and conducting a workshop on Writing your Family Memoirs.
