Book Fair from 6.30 in the foyer.

Speaker: Tamar Hodes, author

Talk:  Life Drawing, Life Writing

In life drawing classes there is a model, but when we write we have no such model, so where do our ideas come from? And how can experiences be turned into fiction? Using her story ‘The Pigeon’, broadcast on BBC Radio 4, writer Tamar Hodes will show us how she used a real incident as a basis for her work, combining fact with imagination and technique. She will also read from her latest novel Mixed.

Tamar’s books – Raffy’s ShapesThe Watercress Wife and Other StoriesThe Water and the Wine, and Mixed will be on sale and she will happily sign copies.

Special Guest: B Random, author

A passion for sci-fi/ fantasy  as a teenager led to her writing a first book aged fourteen. After a family and a career in law and medicine came a chance to return to her first love for writing. Her inspirations come from science, wildlife and nature, especially the sea. She has been a member of the Hampshire Writers’ Society since its inception.

The appeal of living in another world, escaping from the mundane, endures.  Delighting in the weird and wonderful, sharing glorious flights of imagination, she draws you into fantasy lands and darkest emotion. The style will take your breath away and make you smile. Expect a vivid roller-coaster of action, emotion and the unexpected. For her, the writer’s reward is to take other people into that brand new world and show them its magic.
