COGITO FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHT - From the huge range of wonderful events at this year's Hexham Book Festival, we've picked out a selection that we're particularly looking forward to. We have also reviewed a number of the books associated with these events in our Recommendations pages.
We'll have our book filled stall at all of the events, but if you would like to get a head start on your festival reading, we've already got many of the authors' books in the bookshop. Copies of the full programme of events are available to pick up in Cogito, or alternatively look online at the Hexham Book Festival website
The novelisation of the fascinating life of Frieda von Richthofen, wife and muse of D.H. Lawrence and the inspiration for Lady Chatterley is a compassionately imagined, lushly written tale that brings to vibrant, sensual life a figure plucked from the footnotes of literary history. In Annabel Abbs’ novel Frieda emerges as a woman whose behaviour and thinking is often provocatively at odds with modernity even while she seems to be ushering in a new more liberated age.
