Came the Lightening: Twenty Poems for George

Winter Weekend 2022, 

The author dedicates her first book of poetry to her late husband George Harrison in the 20th anniversary of his death. With an introduction by Martin Scorsese, the book includes personal photographs and mementos. Olivia co-produced the Grammy award-winning film of the 2002 Concert For George. She also received an Emmy for Outstanding Non-fiction Special from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2012 for her role as producer on the Martin Scorsese documentary: George Harrison: Living in the Material World. In 2005, she established The George Harrison Fund for UNICEF, which has helped children affected by civil conflict, natural disasters or poverty in Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Brazil, India, Angola, Romania, the Horn of Africa, Burma and Nepal and Mexico.

She talks to journalist and Hay Festival trustee Dylan Jones.
