There was a really good discussion about the books, the characters and life in the 60s and 70s. We look forward to welcoming Simon back when he completes his series.


Emma Chapman and William Ryan author event



A fantastic evening was had with Emma Chapman and William Ryan, when they came to talk to us about the fascinating research that resulted in their latest books.




Both authors brought photos to show us which gave a wonderful insight into the background of both novels.  Couple this with a glass of wine and good conversation and a great night was had by all.
