A Homeland Denied 

We are holding an event jointly with Dartmouth Library at 5.30pm on Tuesday 23 May entitled A Homeland Denied - in the footsteps of a Polish PoW by Irena Kossakowski.

Her book is based on memories of her father, a young Polish university student in 1939 who joined the army only to be captured by the Russians and sent to a labour camp. This is the dramatic and poignant story of his  wartime experiences, eventually joining the British army. The event marks the allied victory at Monte Casino, where he fought, and where there was huge loss of life, particularly amongst the Polish forces. Tickets cost £2.50 from the library.

The book is for sale at the shop.

OUR 5TH BIRTHDAY AND WINNIE-THE-POOH'S 90TH EVENT

We celebrated our 5th Birthday with an event at Dartmouth Library marking also the 90th Birthday of Winnie-the- Pooh, on Monday December 5.

Author Kathryn Aalto gave a talk for grown-ups on her book ‘The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh: A walk through the Forest that Inspired the Hundred Acre Wood’ Her book is part travelogue, part biography and natural history – a companion guide to the Pooh stories, evoking a wonderful sense of place, and a reminder of how childhood is founded on magic and secret hideaway places. It has proved popular on her recent tour of the United States (you can buy a copy at the bookshop).
