Becoming Dick Francis by Felix Francis – A Talk by the Author at Middleton Cheney Library
Hornton’s resident crime fiction bestselling author, Felix Francis, presents Becoming Dick Francis at a talk at Middleton Cheney library this Thursday (June 21st) evening – a rare chance to find out about how he took over his famous father’s writing role and preserved this global literary brand.
Felix has kindly agreed to do the talk to support the Middleton Cheney Library Supporters Group who are fighting hard, against the odds, to keep their library open. It’s a must for anyone who hasn’t heard Felix speak before.
Tickets are £7 to include a glass of wine and you can pay on the door. Felix will be signing and selling his books. The library is easy to find, right in the centre of Middleton Cheney by the crossroads, next to the school and with a large car park.
***To make life even easier, Chris and Steve Woodcock from Hornton will be going and have at least three spare seats in their car if anyone fancies joining them– tel. 670795.
