Hometown Tales is a new series of books pairing up and coming new writers with some of the most talented and important writers at work today. With eight books covering Glasgow, the Midlands, Yorkshire, Highlands & Hebrides, Wales, Birmingham, Lancashire and the South Coast, Hometown Tales is the first initiative of its kind to focus on regional diversity.
Showcasing a range of fiction and non-fiction stories, the Hometown Tales series feature powerful, fascinating and moving stories, celebrating regional voices and exploring the meaning of the places we call home.
We are delighted to welcome local and regional writers Maria Whatton, Kerry Young and Carolyn Sanderson who will be reading and discussing their stories which feature in Hometown Tales: Birmingham and Hometown Tales: Midlands.
This event will be chaired by lecturer and author Anna Lawrence Peitroni.
