Follow The Moon and Stars: A Literary Journey Through Nottinghamshire with John Baird - Edwinstowe Library

Edwinstowe Library, Mansfield

Time -
Venue Edwinstowe Library

Join the author John Baird for an illustrated talk about his new book Follow the Moon and Stars - a literary journey through Nottinghamshire.

John has tracked down the county's writers, past and present, through the places they lived, worked, wrote about and were inspired by. Amongst the local pubs, churches, grand houses and theatres are more unlikely destinations of influence. His talk will span the county, exploring how Nottinghamshire writers have changed the world. 

For centuries, Notts has been producing writers of world-altering literature in its many forms. Follow the Moon and Stars is a guide to the lost, little-known and well-loved locations that have played a part in the county’s remarkable literary heritage: from the Arboretum to the Zara building, and covering the entire county

John Baird works as a tutor for Inspire and lectures on nonverbal communication. A novelist, he has written for anthologies, magazines and the radio. He also writes for Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature and in his spare time he edits CrimeThrillerHound and the blog NottsLit.
