LITERARY LUNCH WITH VICTORIA HISLOP
Wed 19 October 2016, 13:00 – 15:00 BST
Join us for a literay lunch with Victoria Hislop, the international bestselling author of The Island, The Thread, The Return and The Sunrise, as she talks about her extraordinary new novel Cartes Postales from Greece.
Week after week, the postcards arrive, addressed to a name Ellie does not know, with no return address, each signed with an initial: A. With their bright skies, blue seas and alluring images of Greece, these cartes postales brighten her life. After six months, to her disappointment, they cease. But the montage she has created on the wall of her flat has cast a spell. She must see this country for herself. On the morning Ellie leaves for Athens, a notebook arrives. Its pages tell the story of a man’s odyssey through Greece. Moving, surprising and sometimes dark, A’s tale unfolds with the discovery not only of a culture but also of a desire to live life to the full once more.
Cartes Postales from Greece is a novel to enchant - beautifully written and illustrated with photographs it makes a journey around Greece, already alive in the imagination, linger long in the mind. Join us for a delicious buffet lunch at The Wynnstay Hotel with this inspirational and much loved author - what better way to spend an afternoon!
