More going on in Cumbria

Posted 28 Oct 2014 by Helen Towers in Events

A Storytelling event for families takes place at Carlisle Library on Saturday 15th November 10.30am to 11.30am Free event

Come and hear Cumbria’s best known storyteller, Taffy Thomas, tell stories from his brand new book: Ghost of the Trenches & Other Stories

As the Great War raged, and in its aftermath, people created hundreds of legends and stories round it, to speak of the sadness, the heroism, the deaths.

Author Helen Watts and storyteller Taffy Thomas bring together this compelling, moving collection of ghost stories and mysteries from both sides of the conflict, from the haunted U-boat to the ghost of the trenches. 

Not library events, but interesting for readers should be two  festivals also  taking place in November

Maryport Literary Festival takes place 14th-16th November

Kendal Mountain Festival 20th-23rd November, as always includes a lot of book content
