Books on Tyne Festival 2019

Fifty – Not Out! (Newcastle City Library)

Novelist Helen Bridgett and poet Vicky Arthurs discussed how turning fifty kickstarted their careers as authors and revealed why they write about older characters. From grandchildren to grand tours, cardigans to karaoke, their books explore the trappings of mid-life with humour and affection. A unique blend of chat, feelgood fiction and poignant poetry, exploring the joys of writing as fifty-somethings.
