Come and meet local author Carolyn O’Brien as she talks about the inspiration for her powerful new novel.
The Song of Peterloo tells the dramatic story of Manchester mill-worker, Nancy Kay. Desperate to provide for her ailing mother and sensitive son, Nancy is drawn into the agitation for reform. But as she risks everything to attend a great assembly on St Peter’s Field, Nancy is unaware the day will go down in history not as triumph, but as tragedy; the Peterloo massacre.
Carolyn will be here on Thursday 19th September at 7pm.
Tickets cost £3.00 – this includes a glass of wine and is redeemable against the cost of a book on the evening.
Between 15th June and 22nd June we will be hiding bears in various shops around Urmston – and it will be your job to find them.
To take part you need to come to the book shop to pick up your bear hunt pack, then away you go!
You have one week to collect up to 10 bear tokens.
There are various prizes along the way, with a grand prize of a Bear Hunt back pack for the overall winner.
On Saturday 22nd June at 2pm we will be having a grand prize draw and a retelling of the classic story, here in the shop.
What are you waiting for? Pop into the shop to collect your hunting pack today!
