On Thursday 25th May, Patrick Church will be talking about the history of cinema to a society called PROBUS. From the 60s through to the present day, Patrick Church has worked in the cinema from Peterborough through to Bury St Edmunds; his new autobiography, 'The Smallest Show on Earth', accounts for his cinema journey. The event will take place in the lecture rooms of Abbey House, Bury St Edmunds.
Donna L. Jones, author of the new sci-fi 'The Rise of Global', is at Glynneath Library on Thursday 25th May to discuss and sign copies of her new book. The event will take place between 2pm-3pm, so don't miss your chance to meet the author!
Head to the Moordown Community Centre tonight to meet the excellent Fiona J. Roberts to hear her talk and to get your copies of the brilliant 'Ebb and Flow' signed.
Julia is all too aware of her failings, unable to cook, nervous and tongue-tied at any social event, lacking confidence. Moving to a country cottage in a beautiful but isolated spot is just what she needs to lift her depression and with Mark, her loving husband, new friends and hobbies, life starts to look better.
But in a short time she's displaying a startling change of personality, criticising and belittling her new friends, shop-lifting, even giving in to violent tendencies. Is she bipolar, psychopathic or could her apparent addiction to the water from the old bore-hole in the garden be to blame?
Is there a connection to earlier inhabitants as far back as Victorian times or could there be a malign influence somewhere close by the cottage? Mark sets out to solve the mystery of his wife's strange behaviour in his own logical but unorthodox fashion, but his interference leads to an unexpected turn of events.
Phil Barnes, author of the superb children's book 'My Teacher's a Spy!', will be at Fair on the Square - Hay Festival on Saturday 27th May from 9am-2pm. Head down to the Hay-on-Wye Book Festival to meet Phil Barnes!
