SEASONS: Chesham Writers launch their new collection of our short stories…
Autumn bonfires, winter snow, spring lambs and summer swifts – all classic elements of the Chiltern seasons. Add in a birth, a marriage, a death and a murder, a couple of holidays and a dream or two and you have the recipe for the entertaining mix of fifteen short stories that makes up Chesham Writers and Scribblers’ second collection of short stories: ‘Seasons’.
All proceeds go to charity and copies may be purchased from the Chesham Museum, and The DrawingRoom Art Cafe in Chesham – the venue for most of our meetings.
