Welcome to our events page. Below is a list of our current programme – please contact us for more information or if you would like to hold an event in the shop.
Wednesday 13th July 6pm
Join us for the launch of In My Grandfather’s Shadow, a memoir by local author Angela Findlay. In a rare confluence of memoir, psychology and historical detective story, this is Findlay’s account of her unflinching quest for the truth about her German family, one that breaks through the silence surrounding many of the Second World War’s perpetrators. In My Grandfather’s Shadow explores the heritability of unresolved experiences, questions deeply held perceptions of good and bad, and uncovers the lesser-known history of the war’s losers, a post-war culture of apology and atonement, and the lingering legacy of shame.
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?
