Frances Hamblin, a former Senior lecturer in the Academic Skills Unit (ASK) at the University of Portsmouth and friend of the CCI faculty, is launching her new book ‘Warehouse’.
‘Warehouse is a picaresque tale of a group of people brought together by the housing association block they share – the converted warehouse of the title. Into their midst comes Tracey, a spirited but troubled young woman whose odyssey takes us to the 1980s Troubles in Northern Ireland in search of a boy she knew in her orphanage days and her brother who has joined the army. Tracey’s often bitter-sweet adventures, told in salty, vivid prose, lead to a surprising and tender reconciliation as well as a shocking conclusion.’
The launch and book signing will take place at Blackwells bookshop on Friday 20th November at 3.30pm-4.30pm, everyone is welcome to come along and celebrate with Frances.
