Journalist and writer Kate Spicer will be joining us with the wonderful Wolfy for an evening of wit and wisdom as she talks about her new memoir. Both funny and sad ‘Lost Dog’ is the story of a woman and her best friend lost and found through love.

Meet woman’s best friend.

Kate is a middle aged woman trying to steer some order into a life that is going off the rails. When she adopts a lurcher called Wolfy, the shabby rescue dog saves her from herself. But when the dog disappears, it is up to Kate to hit the streets of London and find him. Will she save him, as he has saved her – or will she lose everything?

As she trudges endlessly calling his name in the hopeless hope she may find him, she runs into other people’s landscapes and lives, finding allies amongst psychics, bloggers and mysterious midnight joggers. Trying to find her dog tests her relationship, and her sanity, to its limits – and gets her thinking about her life, and why things have turned out as they have for her. A brilliant, life-affirming memoir, Lost Dog is a book like no other about both about the myth of modern womanhood, and the enduring mystery of the relationship between human and canine.

'The Bras and the Bees' Book Launch

Join us for a glass of wine and the book launch of ‘The Bras and the Bees’ by F.A. Notley on Tuesday 20th August at 6pm.

The Bras and the Bees: the Extraordinary Life of BJ Sherriff tells Brian’s story. It describes how he experienced the Bristol blitz as a boy, inherited a corset factory from his grandfather and became director of a bra factory in Camborne. When his business was failing – he used to supply M&S and once delivered a consignment by boat to Falmouth – in the recession of the 1970s, he and his wife used materials intended for bras and swimsuits to develop a completely new kind of beekeeping hood, which brought him international recognition.
