Well known local personality Baron Brian Mawhinney will be talking about his life and his new memoir, ‘Just a Simple Belfast Boy’.

As MP for Peterborough and North West Cambridgeshire, Minister of State for both the Northern Ireland Office and Chairman of the Conservative Party, he found  himself at the centre of some of the most tumultuous events of recent British history – the peace process in Ireland, Britain in Europe, Thatcher versus Major.

His autobiography is full of the acerbic wit and outspoken opinion that characterises Brian Mawhinney – the man and the politician.

Copies of his book will be available for purchase and signing.

Born in Lincolnshire, Anne lives in the Peak District. Having lived in Greece for seven years her attachment to the islands remains strong, inspiring much of her writing.  She was the winner of the East Midlands Book Award and was nominated for the ITV Crime Thriller Awards.


Meet Rachel Joyce
Talking about her new book - Perfect

Peterborough Central Library

£5 (£4 concessions & reading group members)

Tickets from any library or Waterstones Peterborough
Tel 01733 864280

Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, will be at Central Library speaking about her new novel Perfect.

In 1972 two seconds were added to time.
Were they to blame for what happened next?

“It was all because of a small slip in time, the whole story. The repercussions were felt for years and years. Of the two boys, James and Byron, only one did not flounder. Only one kept on course.”  Rachel Joyce’s latest novel is about misunderstandings, the small acts of kindness that make the difference and the redemptive nature of time.

Rachel Joyce is the author of the bestseller The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, which was longlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize and for which Rachel Joyce was awarded New Writer of the Year 2013.
