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.
Come and meet Angela Dyson, author of the brilliant novel, The Love Detective.
Meet Clarry Pennhaligan, a girl who’s low on ambition but high on energy. Things get interesting when she discovers an unexpected flair for poking her nose in to other people’s business. Who knew that embarking on a career as a private detective could be so all-absorbing? Or so dangerous.
Angela will be talking about her writing and entertaining us with a dramatic extract from her book….
‘One lady was so immersed in the drama that she’d forgotten she still had her champagne flute in her hand and it crashed to the floor! ‘
