The Write Stuff - Ben Fergusson

Ben Fergusson was born in Southampton,UK, studied English Literature at Warwick University, and Modern Languages at Bristol University, and has worked as an editor, translator and publisher. He has published three award-winning novels all set in Berlin, and the library has just acquired his most recent work, An Honest Man. 18 year old Ralf is having a carefree summer in Berlin in 1989, oblivious of the storm gathering on the other side of the Berlin Wall. An unsettling discovery and Cold War tensions begin to tear his life apart, and he finds himself caught up in a web of deceit, forcing him to make impossible choices.
Fergusson currently teaches at the University of Potsdam, to visit him online click here.

Annual tradition of helping those in need

Photo by Madeleine Langlois

War Memorial Library presents cheque donations to 18 local worthwhile causes.
These monies are the result of careful expenditure by our library volunteers, the dedicated hard work of our amazing Shoppe volunteers who prepare the weekly Saturday morning sale as well as our loyal customers who purchase the donated items at very reasonable prices – true community spirit!

Fine Amnesty until January 7

Murder Ink - JJ Marsh

JJ Marsh is the author of The Beatrice Stubbs series. Jill grew up in Wales, Africa and the Middle East, where her curiosity for culture took root and triggered an urge to write. After graduating in English Literature and Theatre Studies, she worked as an actor, teacher, writer, director, editor, journalist and cultural trainer all over Europe.
The Beatrice Stubbs Series are not just heart-racing crime novels, they are also European adventures. Each story is immersed in the landscape, culture, cuisine, architecture and personality of its location.
The library recently acquired Beatrice Stubbs Series Box Set One which contains her first three novels – Behind Closed Doors, Raw Material and Tread Softly.  Box Set Two will be added to our collection next month.
Marsh lives in Switzerland with her husband and three dogs.  To visit her online, click here.
