SUE BIRLEY – on Travels with a Brompton.

Moving slowly is one thing, and recently reckoned to be a good thing, but when there are vultures circling above you and you are told to keep moving in case they think you are dead… it’s quite another! Who’d have thought a friendly folding bike could get you into this kind of ‘danger’! Actually, for the most part, the bike led to adventure, fun, and new friendships.
Proof reader, piano teacher, nurse, and now author, Sue Birley is an unwitting supporter of the ‘slow’ movement, about living each moment to its fullest. Sue has done so by pedalling many wine-fuelled miles, free-wheeling in France, and writing about it.

The SWINDON FESTIVAL OF LITERATURE takes place 2nd – 8th May. It celebrates things well thought, well written, and well said, both serious and funny!

Seven days of great authors and entertaining speakers, it will include novelists, poets, philosophers, travellers, scientists, storytellers, historians, comedians, artists, and writing workshops There will be events at midday, teatime, and in the evening, carefully spaced and placed to enable you to attend almost every one, should you have the stamina!
