Go to What's On


Wed 27 Oct 2010

Need a pick-me-up? Would you like to be amused? An afternoon in the company of witty and often downright funny Gervase Phinn reading from and talking about his latest Out of the Woods But Not Over the Hill book will make you look at life and laugh aloud.

Now in his 7th decade, Gervase Phinn is not ready for afternoon naps and games of dominoes. He has discovered that being bit older has its advantages. You can express your feelings and opinions freely and forcefully. With this in mind, he gives warm and witty opinions on everything from marriage to manners and mobile phones to grandparents. Unearthing some of the most diverse of experiences, he writes about his memories spanning youth to adulthood.

Yorkshire's best-known author, Gervase has sold over 900,000 copies of his series of Dale books - including Over Hill and Dale - about his life as a school inspector.

Brimming with nostalgia and never shy of an opinion, this is life according to Gervase Phinn at his wittiest, twinkly-eyed best.
