A lucky win for TWO of our members!

Hearth Gladstone Library with Maggie

Cathy won a free weekend at the ‘Hearth’ micro literary festival at Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden and took lucky Maggie along as her ‘plus one’.

Hearth Cathy with James Runcie

The writers in residence were James Runcie (seen above with Cathy), whose series of novels about a vicar turned sleuth in Grantchester has now been turned into a television drama screened on Monday evenings, radio, TV and screen dramatist Lucy Gough and novelists Rebecca Abrams and Patricia Bracewell.

Hearth hearth

As well as enjoying the more formal events, both ladies were more than happy to sit round the eponymous hearth with glasses of wine in their hands and take part in the discussions.

For more information about their weekend, take a look at https://www.writers-online.co.uk/information/Gladstone%20Library%20Hearth%20literary%20micro-festival%20review/ or Maggie’s website. Future ‘Hearth’ events will be posted on www.gladstoneslibrary.org

Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
