Exploring the Ephemera of Books
Monday, 20 November 2017
Have you ever found a postcard, a letter, a train ticket or perhaps a pressed flower between the pages of a secondhand book? An evening of conversation with local author Claire Fuller explores these lost and found treasures, which often tell stories of their own.
October Books say on their Facebook page: "Claire
Fuller will talk about the inspiration for her novel Swimming Lessons
(published by Penguin earlier this year), the plot of which revolves
around letters from a disappeared wife and mother, which she leaves in
her husband’s books. We will also share the stories of other found items
in books and have a display of book ephemera.
"If you would
like to contribute a story or bring along a piece of book ephmera (and
its book) to the evening please contact
The event takes place on Wednesday November 22, 2017 from 7pm - 9pm at October Books in Portswood, and is part of the As part of the Human Worlds Festival and free booking is required at Eventbrite
