Continuing our eclectic mix of author events, we very much enjoyed neuroscientist/stand-up comedian Dean Burnett’s visit in June with his unique take on happiness and the human brain.

July brings popular Shropshire author/poet Kate Innes, whose debut novel, ‘ The Errant Hours’, has regularly  featured in our bestseller list since publication. We feel sure that the sequel, ‘All The Winding World’, will make it onto the list too.

Church Stretton Library is the venue for both talks: there is parking at the venue and nearby. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, chat to the authors, and purchase signed copies of their books.


Kate Innes ‘All The Winding World’

Thursday 5th July 7.00pm

Venue: Church Stretton Library

Tickets £5 to include light refreshments

from Burway Books and Church Stretton Library.

We look forward to welcoming Kate Innes for the launch of her new novel: Kate will be giving an illustrated talk followed by a reading from her book, then a Question and Answer session.

‘All the Winding World’ continues the story begun in ‘The Errant Hours’. It is set ten years later, during the disastrous Anglo-French War of 1294-6, one of Edward I’s rare military defeats. Sir

Richard Burnel has been forcibly recruited to lead a division into France in order to regain control of the Duchy of Gascony. But his commanders prove to be incompetent, and Richard is taken hostage along with many of King Edward’s most trusted knights.

Meanwhile in the Welsh Marches, resentment boils over into rebellion against crippling taxes and conscription. Illesa,

struggling to protect their family and manor, must find an

ingenious way to free her husband, before Fortune’s Wheel tips them all into death and ruin.
