Book of the Week 15th May ’17

Book of the Week is Chris Packham’s beautifully wrought coming-of-age memoir. ‘His search for freedom, meaning & acceptance in a world that didn’t understand him’.

Taken from Chris Packham’s Website :-

Sunday Times No.1 Best Seller. -“Every minute was magical, every single thing it did was fascinating and everything it didn’t do was equally wondrous, and to be sat there, with a Kestrel, a real live Kestrel, my own real live Kestrel on my wrist! I felt like I’d climbed through a hole in heaven’s fence.”

An introverted, unusual young boy, isolated by his obsessions and a loner at school, Chris Packham was only at home in the fields and woods around his suburban home. But when he stole a young kestrel from its nest, he was about to embark on a friendship that would teach him what it meant to love, and that would change him forever.

In his rich, lyrical and emotionally exposing memoir, Chris brings to life his childhood in the 70s, from his bedroom bursting with fox skulls, birds’ eggs and sweaty jam jars, to his feral adventures. But pervading his story is the search for freedom, meaning and acceptance in a world that didn’t understand him.

The Book Group are reading ‘Date with Death’ by Julia Chapman.eTlxuVng

Their May Choice is ‘The Waves’ by Virginia Woolf. Anna says “It challenged us all! A reading experience, baffling and intense! ” , some other comments “liquid poetry”, “rambling monologue”, & “a play poem”.

Wine & Book Talk with Salley Vickers

Wine & Book Talk with highly acclaimed author Salley Vickers

Monday 5th June 7pm to 8.30pm in the BookCafe (doors open 6.30pm)cover_jpg_rendition_242_374

Salley talks about her latest book ‘Cousins’ . Tickets £3 each includes complimentary glass of wine.

Brilliant and mercurial Will Tye suffers a life changing accident. The terrible event ripples through three generations of the complex and eccentric Tye family, bringing to light old tragedies and dangerous secrets. Each member of the family holds some clue to the chain of events which may have led to the accident and each holds themselves to blame. Most closely affected is Will’s cousin Cecelia, whose affinity with Will leaves her most vulnerable to his suffering and whose own life is for ever changed by how she will respond to it.

Told through the eyes of three women close to Will, his sister, his grandmother and his aunt, Cousins is a novel weaving darkness and light which takes us from the outbreak of World War Two to the present day, exploring the recurrence of tragedy, the nature of trangression, and the limits of morality and love.S Vickers best

Salley Vickers will read extracts from her book, followed by a question and answer session, and a book signing. Event starts from 7pm to 8.30pm, doors open 6.30pm.To reserve tickets tel 01845 524353 or e-mail: sales@whiterosebooks.com.
