Ilona Bannister returns!

Please come to our next author event, Tuesday 9 August.  Ilona Bannister will discuss writing and read from her latest novel  Little Prisons - about four isolated women living in the same block of flats as Covid Lockdown looms.  Will they make connections?  The theme of neighbourliness combating loneliness and giving mutual support is more relevant than ever.  Last year, during lockdown, Ilona introduced us to her post-9/11 novel When I Ran Away, via Zoom. On Tuesday, she will be with us in-person. Don’t miss this uplifting story of kindness, compassion and hope.

Join us at 6.30 for tea & biscuits; the talk plus Q&A runs from 7.00 – 8.30.  The event will be live-streamed for those who cannot come to the library.  Registration is free on

Ilona's family is Ukrainian and a portion of her book sales goes to Ukrainian charities.
