From Tim:

From 5.30pm this Friday, we’ll be partying like it’s 1999 and we were all 20 years younger. There will be wine and snacks available, and you’re welcome to bring your own bottles too.

At 6.30pm, we’ll have the paperback launch of the critically acclaimed Our Child of the Stars by our writing group alumnus, Stephen Cox!

When we say ‘critically acclaimed’, we’re not kidding. Here’s a short selection of reviews:
This strong and generous first novel wears its heart on its sleeve and embeds all the thrills and chills in credible human, and non-human, emotions - Daily Mail
A pleasing, big-hearted read, its late-1960s setting well evoked - Financial Times
Sympathetic characterisation and fine storytelling . . . What makes this such a satisfying read, apart from the thrillingly rendered chase (and the refreshing notion that not all aliens are bent on inimical invasion), is the characterisation of Molly and Gene, a childless couple given this one miraculous chance to show love for an adopted son. This is an optimistic take on the ET theme, done without the schmaltz of the film - Guardian
Part ET, part Wonder, part Snow Child, it has the same combination of science fiction and heart-tugging tenderness that Stephen King does so well – Grazia


After that, we’ll give a few updates on what the All Good Bookshop co-op has been up to, and hopefully, we’ll have some musical guests for a bit of a live session. So, if you play an instrument and fancy bringing it along, join in!
