Celebrated Author Visits Penhurst Gardens!

On 30th April, Penhurst Gardens, as proud sponsors of the Chipping Norton Literary Festival, were delighted to welcome celebrated author, Christopher Somerville to the home to talk about his new book, The January Man.

Based upon Christopher’s experiences as he walked through Britain and Ireland over the course of a year, the book chronicles the people he met along the way as well as the landscapes, nature and local traditions he encountered. On the visit, residents and staff were lucky enough to listen to Christopher read an extract from The January Man, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Afterwards, he was kind enough to autograph a copy for the residents to read at their leisure.
