A.J. Pearce will be discussing her debut novel, Dear Mrs Bird.
Monday 18th June
Linlithgow Canal Tea Rooms
Set in London 1941, Henrietta Bird is the formidable agony aunt of Women's Friend magazine. After a rather unfortunate misunderstanding with a job advertisement, Emmy Lake finds herself typing letters for Mrs Bird. This is an irresistibly funny and enormously moving story. It is a love letter to the enduring power of friendship, the kindness of strangers and the courage of ordinary people in extraordinary times.
Tickets are available to buy in the shop or over the phone at 01506 845509
Former Bishop of Edinburgh, Richard Holloway will be discussing his most recent book, Waiting for the Last Bus.
Saturday 23rd June
St. Peter's Church, Linlithgow
Facing and welcoming death gives us the chance to think about not only the meaning of our own life, but of life itself; and can mean the difference between ordinary sorrow and unbearable regret at the end. Radical, joyful and moving, Waiting for the Last Bus is an invitation to reconsider life's greatest mystery.
Tickets for this event are now SOLD OUT!
