'The last in-words event of 2017 is going to be an appropriately joyful one: no jingly bells and carols, but some prose - funny and profound at the same time - and verse - for adults and children - by award-winning author Chrissie Gittins (you have 3 more days to catch her on Countryfile https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/
Chrissie is passionate about nature and its vocabulary, as shown in her poetry book Adder, Bluebell, Lobster. She has a way with words in prose too, as demonstrated in Between Here and Knitwear, her short story collection reviewed by Nicholas Lezard (Guardian) as "bloody brilliant. I can’t remember the last time I read prose so limpid, so carefully unflashy, so exact".
So, do come to hear Chrissie read from these and other published books, to have a few drinks and the opportunity to buy Chrissie's books for children and grown-ups. Another free event.'
