I am indebted to Terence Burchell from Mulbarton near Norwich for this video of me speaking to a lovely audience at Hanover Gardens, Mulbarton in June this year, as part of the Mulbarton Words Festival. I hope some of you will take 30 minutes of your lives to watch as I describe the early life of Joe Stirling, Kindertransport boy and former Sheriff of Norwich, as well as a little about how my debut biography came to be published by Pen and Sword Books in January. In January 2017 this remarkable man’s story will be available even more widely when Skyhorse Publishing of New York publish and distribute my book to the book lovers of the U.S.A. To purchase a signed copy directly from me take a look at the menu on this WordPress blog to find my contact details. Many thanks….
Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of speaking to a room full of eager book lovers, all of whom had bought tickets for the Vintage Tea Party with Phyllida Scrivens, as featured in the programme for Mulbarton Words Week, a festival of all words, spoken, read or sung. Take a look at their Facebook page for more information.
The audience was attentive, knowledgable, inquisitive and friendly! The cakes were delicious and the tea refreshing. I sold a number of copies of Escaping Hitler and came away with many accolades for both my presentation and my vintage dress!
