We are delighted that Sandra Greaves, whose The Skull In The Wood is shortl-listed for the 2014 Waterstones Childrens' Book Prize, will be speaking at Chagword 2015.

We have booked local photographer and filmmaker Chris Chapman to show his latest film, a 50-minute documentary about the Exmoor writer (and legend in her own lifetime) Hope Bourne (1919-2010). The film is called How Many People See The Stars As I Do? The Exmoor story of Hope Bourne. Chris will introduce the film and answer questions.
