Just Making Do by Dia Webb - Author Event
Inspired by the sense of community that developed during the lockdowns, Dia Webb decided to write a fictional account of her wartime experiences. Set in 1943, Just making Do tells the story of a close friendship between two families in wartime North Devon, one renting a small, terraced house in Barnstaple and the other living on a rented smallholding in the country. While they have to cope with illness, rationing and evacuees, American troops arrive to carry out military manoeuvres on the magnificent beaches, and a mysterious tenant comes to live at a secluded cottage on the Fortescue Estate. Dia will be reading from and talking about the book. Signed books will be available for purchase. The event will be accompanied by an exhibition from our Local Studies collection. Free event - booking required: 01271 318780.
