What's on

Saturday 26th November 2022

Hawkesbury Upton Literature Festival - Christmas

Bethesda Chapel, Hawkesbury Upton

Our final HULF Talk of 2022 will be a light-hearted Christmas Special. Included in the programme will be:

- readings from classic Christmas favourites
- talks by authors of books that make great Christmas presents for all ages and interests

The authors will be happy to sign books for you to create personalised gifts for your friends and family or unique Secret Santa gifts.

The authors attending will be:

- A A Abbott with Lies at Her Door, a crime thriller set in Bristol in which a dead body is discovered in a sinkhole that opens up in the middle of community carol singing

- Steve Berry with his memoir Straight Up! - Himalayan Tales of the Unexpected

- Kate Frost with her wintry romantic escape novel, The Amsterdam Affair

- Alice Rosewell with her Little Book of Encouragement

- Michael Macmahon with a trio of books on three timely topics: how to get your bank balance into the black and keep it there, how to make effective wedding speeches, and memorable quotes (a great stocking-filler!)

- John Ruthven with the Whale in Your Living Room for everyone interested in wildlife documentaries

- Betty Salthouse with an assortment of delightful chapter books for children including Mother Koala Knows Best

- Trevor Stubbs with his novels for young adults, including his Flip! and White Gates trilogies and anthology Stardust

- Debbie Young (me!) with my Christmas-themed mystery novels, Murder in the Manger and Sinister Stranger at St Bride's, plus Stocking Fillers, a collection of humorous short stories set at Christmas

...and a few more!
