IN CONVERSATION with CRESSIDA DOWNING: Guinevere Glasfurd and Penny Hancock Sunday 16th July 2.30 pm


On Sunday 16th July at 2.30 pm Guinevere Glasford and I will be talking with Cressida Downing  about how our writing has been influenced by living in the Fens, and by art. Guin’s beautiful literary first novel The Words in my Hand, the untold story of Descarte’s maid, was shortlisted for the Costa first novel award. I will be talking about my writing in general and my new novel which is set in the Fens. This is a local event, held in Waterbeach Barracks Museum, the first building on the left inside the entrance. It is part of Summer at the Beach, three weekends of Open Studios and other events. Please come along and join in the talk over coffee, tea and cake. There will also be a book signing, and the art on show alone is well worth a trip to Waterbeach,’ the Left Bank of the Cam!’
