With the Books in the Castle festival just a few weeks away, another of its featured authors joins the Girls Around Town on next Sunday’s show…
Crime fiction writer, reviewer, blogger and reader Sarah Ward will be chatting to Tina and Sue in the first hour.
Both Sarah and this week’s guest Rebeccca Bradley will be speaking about their work in Murder She Wrote at the Castle, from 1pm on Saturday 9 July.
In the meantime, you can hear Sarah talking about her novel In Bitter Chill, which is set in the Derbyshire Peak District where she lives, and the sequel A Deadly Thaw which will be published in September, shortly after 10.15am.
From murder to memories – the girls’ second guest in the studio next weekend is Hilary Wellington of Ginny’s Good Yarn.
Inspired by her grandmother Ginny Rawson, Hilary combines reflexive narrative with memories of learning textile craft skills in therapeutic sessions that work with all the senses, so everyone can engage with them.
An experienced and accredited adult educator with a Master’s degree in lifelong learning and inclusive education, Hilary is an Accredited Member of the National Association of Disability Practitioners and a qualified counsellor.
The services she offers include Piecing It Together, a series of patchwork and quilting sessions for bereaved people; Reminiscence Therapy, which draws on long term memory to reinforce an holistic sense of self, achievements and self esteem; and Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, a structured programme featuring discussion, sharing of opinions, activities, song and refreshments to support active brain function and social support.
To find out more about Hilary and Sarah, tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday…
