James Wilson: The Summer of Broken Stories

Monday 11th May 2015 6pm - 8pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

Join James Wilson, highly acclaimed author of historical fiction titles including The Dark Clue and The Woman in the Picture, as he discusses his new novel The Summer of Broken Stories: a compelling tale of a young boy growing up in 1950s England.

 

While out playing in the woods, 10-year-old Mark befriends Aubrey, a mysterious stranger living in an old railway carriage. The local villagers shun the outsider and want him gone, but Mark cannot help but feel convinced that he must help Aubrey… whatever the cost. Described as 'superb' and 'magical' The Summer of Broken Stories is a novel not to be missed.

 

James will be in conversation with journalist Tobias Jones, who has written for The Guardian, The Independent and The Financial Times, and will be signing copies of the book after the talk.

Tickets: This event is free but booking is recommended - contact bristolevents@foyles.co.uk to reserve your place(s).
