Literary Lunch with Peter Moore & Ed Kluz

12th October 2018 @ 12:00 - 15:00
The Bridge Hotel and Spa Walshford,LS22 5HSUnited Kingdom + Google Map

This year we welcome two brilliant authors who have published two very different books.

Peter Moore’s Endeavour is probably the most topical book of the month, if not the year - marine  archaeologists think they have just discovered the remains of Captain James Cook's ship off Newport USA, 250 years after it set sail from Whitby.  Captained by James Cook, its discoveries of Pacific Islands, New Zealand and Australia changed the shape of European geographers' thinking about the world.

Contemporary artist Ed Kluz has produced a sumptuously illustrated & authoritative book on forgotten British architectural masterpieces, The Lost House Revisited.

Each will reveal the inspiration behind their book and sign copies after the Lunch.

Three course meal and coffee.  See full menu when you 'Find out More' below

Are political autobiographies not for you? Think again. Alan Johnson’s three volumes vividly document his path from childhood adversity to head of the communications union, then ministerial posts in the Blair and Brown governments. All three books have won major literary prizes.
Barnsley-born Milly Johnson is a Sunday Times Top 5 bestselling author of 16 novels, with millions of copies sold to date. Known as the ‘Queen of Feel-Good Fiction’, her novels feature friendship, family, love, betrayal, good food and that little bit of magic in life that sometimes visits the unsuspecting.
