Two Shoreham Beach authors – Liz Coward and Patrick Souiljaert – will join forces on Saturday, October 14th, to deliver a fascinating talk about their acclaimed and recently published books.
The titles “Stairs for Breakfast and Screw It, I’ll Take The Elevator by Patrick Souiljaert are a search for self-awareness, achievement, acceptance and love. His books are humorous, honest and occasionally self-deprecating. Not many publications set out to change perceptions and succeed in doing so. Patrick does it joyfully.
Blood and Bandages – fighting for life in the RAMC Field Ambulance 1940-1946 by Liz Coward, tells the moving story of William Earl, now aged 102, who left a sweetheart and new-born son, to serve as a frontline Army nursing orderly in North Africa and Italy.
Set in the context of the field ambulance, the Black Cats and Fifth and Eighth Armies, this unique and remarkable book exposes the neglected but vital aspect of the Royal Army Medical Corps in World War Two.
This one-off event will be held on 14th October 2017 at 7.30pm at St Peter’s Church, West Street Shoreham-by-Sea. Proceeds will be shared between East Adur Lions, St Peter’s Church in Shoreham and the Church of the Good Shepherd on Shoreham Beach.
Tickets can be pre-booked via Eventbrite or £5 (£3 with concessions) on the door.
