Episode 14: My Secret Garden Story with Screenwriter Jack Thorne
Aug 26, 2020 Season 1 Episode 14

This is the 4th episode in the “Secret Garden Stories” series that features many of those who have brought this new Secret Garden film to life. In this one, I get to chat with the screenwriter, Jack Thorne.

It is such an intimate peek behind the curtain about how films are really made...and his charm and honesty about the difficulties of bringing a beloved classic to life is heartwarming.

You will love him...and the film even more after listening...all while learning a few life-tending lessons in between.

SHOW NOTES:
In this episode, Jack asks me which “adult” book of my great-great-grandmothers he should read first. And because I can’t choose just one...here are a few to choose from in no particular order:
-The Lost Prince
-The Dawn of To-Morrow
-A Lady of Quality
-The Shuttle
-T. Tembarom
-The Head of the House of Coombe
