After Tim Taylor on 29th June, the third author to occupy our much sought after Local Writers Reading library chair is Chris Longden, who will be joining us on 6th July, 7.30 – 8.30pm.
Chris will be reading from her forthcoming new book, A Cuckoo in the Chocolate, which is a sequel to Mind Games and Ministers, and continues the tale of Rachel Russell:
… a woman struggling to cope with the death of her husband, the shock of lone parenting, ever-increasing debts, the resurrection of an affair with a former colleague and most recently a bit of a fling with a Government Minister.
Both books are best described as ‘light-hearted northern fiction – with a strong social message.’
Chris is from Dukinfield and moved to Namibia in 2003, where she lived and worked with the Kalahari Bushmen – producing two books about them. On returning to the UK – with new family in tow – Chris settled in Netherton where she began to manage an international charity as well as becoming involved in setting up Dark Woods Coffee Roastery in Marsden.
Entrance is £5, payable on the door, refreshments included. Reserve your place below.
