Tuesday 21st June 6pm:
Following on from his previous bestsellers Liquid Gold and Shearwater, Roger Morgan-Grenville will be back to celebrate the launch of his latest book Taking Stock: A Journey Among Cows. Since highland cattle ransacked his grandmother’s vegetable patch when he was six, Roger has been fascinated by cows. So at the age of 61, with no farming experience, he signed on as a part- time labourer on a beef cattle farm to tell their side of the story.

One Tree Writers
Do you write? Have you always wanted to write? We’re a small friendly group who have been meeting for over ten years. We take turns to read out whatever we are currently working on and offer each other advice and support. Over time we have had writers working on short stories, novels (adult, YA and children’s), poetry, memoir, blogs and even academic essays! We have met at various venues and now, at Tim’s invitation, we will be based at One Tree books – hence our new name. We meet upstairs at 2.30 on Tuesday afternoons. If you think you might be interested, why not come along and say hello?
