The Old Woman From Friuli and BRAT
Deptford Lounge, Saturday, July 1 at 11am
Reading by actor Carrie Cohen of
The Old Woman From Friuli By Ghillian Potts, Illustrated by Ed Boxall
The Duke looks out from his castle, and everything he can see for miles and miles belongs to him. Everything, except one small strong house, with a small garden, two goats and a beehive. They belong to the old woman from Friuli. The Duke wants that house, but the old woman, she won’t sell. She’s from Friuli, where all the REALLY stubborn people come from.
A short folk tale for everyone from small children to old women, and probably even suitable for sulky dukes.

And for young adults an extract from Brat: The Naming of Brook Storyteller Book One a fantasy novel by Ghillian Potts
On her twelfth birthday Brat’s father disappears. She waits, but he never comes back. When she goes looking she is laughed at, and her belongings stolen. Reduced to begging and determined to find out what has happened to him, she is helped by Gray and Baylock, whom she quickly discovers are outlaws. There is far more to either of them than a brush with the law, and Brat finds that nothing is simple, nowhere is safe, and being reunited with her family must wait, as more pressing tasks fall into her path.
