Episode notes

The Miseducation of Evie Epworth is this week’s Book Club novel. Set in the 1960s, it follows larger-than-life 16 year old Evie as she navigates following her dreams of leaving Yorkshire for the bright lights of London …not least to escape the clutches of her step mother, determined to keep her closer to home.

Author Matson Taylor is a design historian – the material culture of specific decades is of particular interest to him, something that comes across particularly strongly in his novel as he immerses the reader in 1960s Yorkshire. Matson, Richard, and Judy discuss the music and icons of the ‘60s, and their own teenage hopes and dreams.
