Join us on Saturday 12th September when we welcome Emma Yarlett to host our regular storytelling at 11am.
Poppy has the most extraordinary imagination. When she is sent upstairs to tidy her room, she just can’t help imagining and suddenly …her imagination literally comes alive. Soon her room is jam-packed with all kinds of weird and wonderful creatures.
There’s a problem, though – the mammoth puts his foot through the floor and the hungry crocodile thinks Poppy would make a tasty snack. Poppy needs to get rid of all these creatures FAST – but how?
Storytelling begins at 11am, followed by colouring activities and then a book signing at 11.30.
Join us on Tuesday 15th September to hear Sebastian Faulks talk about his writing and his latest novel Where My Heart Used to Beat which will be published by Hutchinson on 10 September 2015.
On a small island off the south coast of France,Robert Hendricks, an English doctor who has seen the best and the worst the twentieth century had to offer, is forced to confront the events that made up his life. His host, and antagonist, is Alexander Pereira,a man whose time is running out, but who seems to know more about his guest than Hendricks himself does.
The search for sanity takes us through the war in Italy in 1944, a passionate love that seems to hold out hope, the great days of idealistic work in the 1960s and finally – unforgettably – back into the trenches of the Western Front.
The recurring themes of Sebastian Faulks’s fiction are here brought together with a new stylistic brilliance as the novel casts a long, baleful light over the century we have left behind but may never fully understand. Daring, ambitious and in the end profoundly moving, this is Faulks’s most remarkable book yet.
Sheila has read an advance copy of Where My Heart Used To Beat and absolutely loved it, she was blown away by it and is really looking forward to hearing Sebastian talk about it and his writing.
