The Monk who cast a spell
given on Tuesday 25th February
Sharon Bradshaw started writing at Summer School in 2009 and her first novel – The Monk who cast a Spell – featured a young medieval monk Durstan as the main character- a young man sitting on a low stone wall gazing out to sea – researching background to his story and reading more of the history of the period of the Dark Ages where the Christian church was striving to become established against the background of superstition and fear amongst the general population.
Sharon was a very good storyteller and very well informed, and members particularly enjoyed her reading of extracts from her book.
The meeting was enjoyed by more than 51 members . Tea/coffee refreshments served afterwards.
Our next meeting is Tuesday 24th March. Free to all U3A members at the Wyvern Club (Church Walk opposite the Crammer) at 2 30pm. Not a member? Join Devizes U3A at the Meeting
