There’s a great event coming up at Bridport Library on Thursday 10 November, especially with seniors in mind.
Hamish Whiteley is a teacher and lecturer in the performing arts. He is also a brilliant storyteller.
His book, Growing Up With Grandma, tells of one year in the life of a nine-year-old boy living with his grandparents in Huddersfield in 1959.
He wants to be good and helpful but this is far from simple, Turkeys, bagpipes, kippers and a bed of nails get in the way.
Ten of the stories from the book were broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
Tickets from Bridport Tourist Information Centre, in Bucky Doo Square (telephone 01308 424901 and email email@example.com) and online at bridlit.com
