First of all apologies for not updating our website sooner…mainly due ( although not entirely) to technical problems. I know how frustrating it must be to read all about Christmas once it has passed! However, we start the New Year afresh and with lots of exciting things planned both personal and business. As usual, we will be working hard to bring a varied ‘Meet The Author’ program of events for you, and we realize how incredibly lucky we have been over the years to bring such a wonderful selection of authors from all fields to Warwick. This year promises to be no different judging by the sheer quality of the first three events we can announce.
On 22nd April we will have Professor Edith Hall, internationally renowned for her work on Homer, talking about her new book ‘Introducing The Ancient Greeks’ which promises to be as much fun as intellectually enlightening. We are really looking forward to that. Hot on her heels we have Dr Ruth Scurr award-winning Cambridge historian, biographer and critic and a very highly rated writer who will be talking about her book ‘John Aubrey : My Life’ which really brings to life the world of a 17th-century English gentleman and chronicler of his age who, whilst he was devoted to recording the doings of great men such as Christopher Wren, Isaac Newton and Thomas Hobbes, was himself a pioneer of modern writing. Believe me this will be utterly compelling. And from one traveller round this land of ours to another. Friday 5th June sees Matthew Engel, author of our bestselling book at Christmas ‘Engel’s England’, come and tell us what he found when he set out to visit every county in England and try to distil its special character. A talk full of poignancy, wit, wonderful fascination and the unexpected.
And Matthew Engel fills our slot in a terrific Warwick Words Xtra series of events running from February to June which also includes S J Watson, Emma Bridgwater, Dan Jones, James Runcie and others…..do pick up a program in our shop.
As usual we hope you enjoyThis Months Reviews. ….and we look forward to seeing you at some of the events
