Book Reading

On Wednesday 27th February, Alan Combes, a local author, will be holding a book reading of The Rocking Horse Diary at the Derwent Valley BRIDGE Library. Entry is free and you can purchase signed copies at special prices

The book is targeted at the 8 to 12 age group and tells the sad but funny story of a loving relationship between 9 year old Kirk and his Grandad Sidney, who is on the edge of dementia. It has already been “launched” at Northstead School and received a very positive response from the children

The book aims to give understanding to the young about dementia in a humorous context. It has a warm endorsement from Newcastle University Dementia Research Unit. there The book aims to give understanding to the young about dementia in a humorous context.
