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.
