Tuesday 24th March

Roger Morgan-Grenville

Atkinson-Pryce Books, 7.30pm

Join Roger in the bookshop to hear about his beekeeping journey. It is the story of colourful characters, unlikely friendships and a greater understanding of the challenges the honeybee faces in the world today.

'After a chance meeting in the pub, Roger Morgan-Grenville and his friend Duncan decide to take up beekeeping. Their enthusiasm matched only by their ignorance, they are pitched into an arcane world of unexpected challenges. Coping with many setbacks along the way, they manage to create a colony of beehives, finishing two years later with more honey than anyone knows what to do with.

By standing back from their normal lives and working with the cycle of the seasons, they emerge with a new-found understanding of nature and a respect for the honeybee and the threats it faces.'

Tickets £6: from Atkinson-Pryce, call or email us to reserve yours now.



Tuesday 7th April

Maggie O'Farrell

Biggar & Upper Clydesdale Museum, 7.30pm (doors 7pm) 

We are thrilled to be hosting Maggie for an event with her first historical novel Hamnet. This story reveals, for the first time in fiction, the heartbreaking loss that inspired Shakespeare's most celebrated play.
Join us for an Elizabethan inspired evening with tasty treats and music.

On a summer's day in 1596, a young girl in Stratford-upon-Avon takes to her bed with a fever. Her twin brother, Hamnet, searches everywhere for help. Why is nobody at home? Their mother, Agnes, is over a mile away, in the garden where she grows medicinal herbs.
Their father is working in London. Neither parent knows that one of the children will not survive the week.
It is a story of the bond between twins, and of a marriage pushed to the brink by grief. It is also the story of a kestrel and its mistress; a flea that boards a ship in Alexandria; and a glovemaker's son who flouts convention in pursuit of the woman he loves. Above all, it is a tender and unforgettable reimagining of a boy whose life has been all but forgotten.

Tickets £12, available from us in the bookshop, call, email or book online
