Listen here!

The best thing is going to happen. From 1 January 2019 it will be possible to listen to The Saturday Girls through your very own headphones. The Saturday Girls is now available as an audio book. It’s unabridged so it’s 11 hours long. But think of it – a long car journey, an overnight flight, taking down the Christmas decorations, all those tasks that you dread – all will be so much easier and, let’s face it, more enjoyable, if you can step back into the Sixties, the music, the milkshakes, the money (all in pounds, shillings and pence) with a dash of danger, dancing and delicious Angel cake. Or if you’re just sitting at home, by the fire, maybe sewing on a button, or changing a flat tyre, think of the pleasure of a listening to a good story as you work.

Order it from the library or – hey, splash out on your own copy!

It is of course, still available in paperback.

 

Hi-Heel Sneakers

COMING UP!

Thursday 13 December 10.45am – Hi-Heel Sneakers – Morals, Motown and Milkshakes in the early 60s

As part of the Crouch End U3A series of monthly meetings I’ll be talking about the music, coffee bars, and fashion of the Sixties, and how young working-class people made their way in a rapidly changing and uncertain world. It’s the Christmas meeting so there will be mince pies and tea and coffee. There will be one or two cracker jokes from the 60s and a load of really good pictures. I’m doing a power point and I’ll do some readings from The Saturday Girls and A Sense of Occasion, and maybe even the new book! working title currently The Greenway Girls.

Union Church and Community Hall, Weston Park, N8 9TA  –  doors open 10am
