Event description

Description

Author Gillian’s sister Maureen will talk about the novel Bombweed, and the life of their mother, Margaret Smith, who wrote the original story.

Set largely in Portsmouth, Margaret’s wartime experiences, and those of her friends and family, are the framework for the plot. Written so soon after the real events, they provide a vivid picture of life on the home front.
Maureen will explain how, having inherited four volumes of poorly typed script, they worked on Margaret’s text to produce the final book. She will highlight what messages the story holds for the modern reader.

Doors open 7.15, event starts 7.30.

There will be a cash bar for soft drinks and hot drinks.

Funds raised for equipment and events at Bishopston Library.
