Tickets £8. First novels usually escape the weighty baggage of expectation. They arrive unknown, clamouring to be heard, yet without fanfare. Not so for the eagerly anticipated literary debuts of BAFTAwinning writer, broadcaster and cultural historian Joan Bakewell and actress Roberta Taylor. Bakewell turns to wartime Manchester for her first novel - a touching tale of mothers and daughters, heroism and betrayal, played out on the home front of a benighted Britain. Roberta Taylor, the star of ITV's The Bill (and formerly EastEnders) embraces the harsh British winter of 1963 and a cold climate of secrecy for her first foray into the world of fiction. This follows her best-selling memoir Too Many Mothers. (DeadGoodBooks)
