Saturday 24 Sep 2022 11-1pm

Local author Barbara Maitra spent five years living in India in an extended family and a further ten in a compound made up of British people left behind after India won its independence in 1947. Witness to history in the making, Barbara observed the unique cultural conflicts of the time which then inspired her novel THE SPICE YEARS. She will be speaking about her inspiration for the novel, her years in India and the publishing process for those aspiring to write their own.
