Joan Carter, aged 83 from Nantwich, will launch her book ‘Life Zumba and Now’ at the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge on Friday 3rd May.

Doors open at 630pm, talk starts at 7pm.

Joan’s unusual autobiography begins in the war years in Nantwich and, after witnessing ‘The Darkness’ and ‘The Light’, goes on to consider meditation, theatre, mysticism, space and time, spirituality, philosophy, death, love and hope.

In her book, Joan faces questions about life, the universe and everything…!

Tickets cost £7.50 per person and this includes snacks as well a £2.50 discount upon book purchase on the night.

Denise Lawson from the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge said: “Joan is a really colourful character who doesn’t really need us to sell her book for her, she does a grand job herself.

“It would be lovely to see as many people from Nantwich support this lovely local Cheshire lady at her book launch on 3rd May.”




Other author events coming up at the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge include:


Friday 19th April – to coincide with the Jazz and Blues festival, Linda Wall, author of the ‘Around the World in 575 Songs’ series, will talk about her four years gathering traditional music from every country in the world from Kazakhstan to Kiribati.

She researched the life and culture of these countries and weaved the music in with information, stories and reflections about each country.

Tickets cost £7.50 per person which includes snacks and a £2.50 discount upon book purchase. Doors open 6.30pm for a 7pm start.


Friday 17th May – local author Robert Howe launches his new book ‘A Short Life on the Ocean Wave’.

Robert’s time in the Merchant Navy gave him a wealth of experiences and took him around the world.

He saw some of Africa and Hong Kong when they were still British Protectorates and South Africa under apartheid.

He has had such diverse occupations as a cook at a London hospital to serving the Diplomatic Corp.

This, his fourth book, follows on from his memoir, ‘I’ll Give It Six Months’ and covers his time in the Merchant Navy. A rare look at life at sea in the 60s.

Now retired, Robert lives near his favourite city Chester with his wife Linda Fraser-Webb and now only goes to sea as a passenger.

Tickets cost £7.50 per person which includes snacks and a £2.50 discount upon book purchase. Doors open 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
