Peter who is a  warm and engaging speaker entertained the audience with discussions ranging from the different translators and translations of his work to how he learned to do complicated  plotting when he was a writer on “Take the High Road” when he had to plot stories up to a year in advance.  He also highlighted the plight of the bee and the enormous consequences for the planet, if we don’t resolve what is going wrong.
