Teen Author event: T.S. Easton

Tom Easton is the fabulous fiction writer for all ages with over thirty published books. Tom is the author of Girls Can't Hit, the hilarious story of a girl who joins a boxing club instead of her mother's pilates class to prove that anything boys can do, girls can do too. He is also the author of the laugh-out-loud Boys Don't Knit, which was nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2015.

Join Tom for a lively talk, followed by Q&A and book signing. Copies of Tom Easton's books will be available for purchase provided by The Alligator's Mouth bookshop.

Ham is where the heart is

'Ham is where the heart is' is an exciting new Heritage Lottery Funded oral history project (also supported by Ham Amenities Group and Petersham United Charities) which needs your help to capture unique and fascinating stories.

We need people to be trained to conduct interviews, suggestions for interviewees; volunteers to undertake background research, donations or loans of photographs and memorabilia for copying; help with establishing a website and setting up a learning resource; and much, much more.
