Tracy Chevalier Talks Apples

Our patron Tracy Chevalier will be reading from her new book On the Edge of the Orchard and chatting to award winning cider maker Penny Strong about the trials and triumphs of apple growing and cider making. As well as listening to the fascinating discussion there will also be a chance to sample some delicious Dorset Nectar cider.

I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….

Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
