Zoe Jasko - What the Wind Saw

Zoe Jasko - What the Wind Saw

What the Wind Saw is a collection of 25 short stories of the people, real and imagined, from a small tract of ancient land in the heart of Hertfordshire: Wheathampstead, The Ayots, Welwyn Garden City and St Albans.

It is a journey through the landscape and through history.
The wind has always blown over these villages, fields, rivers, its towns and its city. It always will. We have the same worries, fears, hopes and dreams today as we have always had. We are connected to each other by our shared experiences, by the places that we live and by the paths that we tread. The wind narrates the stories through a prologue and an epilogue and makes its presence felt in the stories themselves.

These are stories of friendship, power, love, grief and ambition inspired by the landscape and what is in it - John Bunyan’s Cottage, Shaw’s Corner, the annual Ayot St Lawrence art show, the Devil’s Dyke, St Albans market, a walk in the woods, a walk across the fields.
With a Foreword by Robert Voss CBE CStJ, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire

Welwyn Garden City Library Friday 18th November 2.30pm to 4pm
