“Inspiration for a Wartime Saga”

A talk by author Judith Barrow

Our speaker for this meeting is the author, Judith Barrow.   Judith grew up in the Pennines, but has lived in Pembrokeshire for the last 30 years.   “Living in the Shadows” is the final book in her “Pattern of Shadows” trilogy, set in Wales and Lancashire.

Judith has also published poetry and short fiction, as well as three children’s books and a play which was performed at the Dylan Thomas Centre.   In spite of her busy writing career, Judith finds time to teach creative writing classes in Tenby, Narberth and Pembroke Dock.

Her talk for us is entitled “Inspiration for a Wartime Saga” which will no doubt stimulate interesting memories in some of us!
