An Evening with Kate Adie (A Non Fiction club meeting progression)

Adie is visiting Warwick School with Warwick Words. Following the delightful non-fiction meeting a few months back when we read Adie's autobiography; the former BBC Chief News Correspondent now charts the seismic move towards equal rights in her latest book ' Fighting on the Home Front'.
Now a visible force in public life, they began to take up essential roles- from transport to policing, munitions to sport, entertainment, even politics. Women had finally become citizens, a recognised part of the war machine, acquiring their own rights and often an independent income.
This is with men that began a century ago and asks what these women achieved for future generations.
It is an account of history at its best-vivid and compelling of the pioneering women who helped with the war as well as revealing assessment of their legacy for women's lives today.

    I found Kate Adie a captivating speaker full of interesting and funny anecdotes

      I agree Jane, in my opinion, Adie had an air about her that kept the energy going in the room. Her tongue-in-cheek mannerism helped to keep her comments light. I'm definitely looking forward to reading her latest book for girl-power!

    HI Hollie. Have all your spare tickets been taken? I have a friend who'd like to attend so thought I'd check with you before referring the friend to the Warwick Word box office. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

      Hi Susan, that should fit in nicely now if you have two and Jane also takes the third. Thank you! All of the reserve tickets are gone now though and so further interest should go to the Box Office

      Hi Hollie, That's great. My friend and I will pay you for the tickets when we see you there. Thanks for organising this. Have a great weekend.

    Hello Hollie, Great that you have a spare ticket. Shall I meet you at the venue to pay you? Also should I turn up at the next Book club meeting as I won't have time to read the current book or leave it until the November meeting? Jane

    September 26, 2013

    • Hollie

      Hi Jane, yes we are meeting at Warwick School's Guy Nelson Hall and when the main organisers give you your ticket then I can take your payment. The book club events happen monthly and not everyone can make every date due to other commitments or other, so if you can make next month then that would be great or there are other events, such as non- fiction club or the coffee meet/book swap. You would be welcome at any activity you fancy! I hope I can make November actually... (!) See you soon :-)

    Great that I've finally got round to joining and look forward to meeting you all. I'd love to attend the Kate Adie event - one of my heroes. Do I book a ticket through the Warwick Words website?

    September 25, 2013

    • Hollie

      Hello to you, Jane! I'm pleased that you are looking forward to it and can use up the second reserved ticket. Kate Adie is definitely an inspiration to anyone with an interest in media or current affairs. Her latest book seems to draw together both aspects and promises fascination!

    Hi Holly, thanks for thinking of me but I'm no longer planning on coming I'm afraid. Hope you find buyers! X

      Thank you for letting me know Emma. The search continues...See you soon x

    Hi everyone, I have just found out that I now have 3 tickets paid for under my name and being reserved. The Box Office can't refund me unless the event is sold out, so I thought to keep them as a reserve unless anyone has yet to buy some? The tickets are £12 and I can get them easily if you don't get around to buying any beforehand. Alternatively, does anyone need a spare or can we ask 2 guests to come? ( I'm thinking of Emma here!) Speak soon.

    September 20, 2013

  • Emma B.

    I was wondering if I might bring other people? Would there be enough spaces? Do I need to buy tickets at all?

    September 16, 2013

    • Hollie

      Hi Emma, yes you can and will need to call the box office. I was told that tickets are selling out fast. The number is below on an earlier comment.

      September 16, 2013

    • Emma B.

      Thanks Holly, must not have read the rest of the info! Will check to see if tickets are left.

    First I said 'Yes', now I'm saying 'No' - I'm not indecisive. Honest! Must condense diaries.

    September 16, 2013

    • Hollie

      No problem John. All the best now!

  • Pam M.

    Hi Hollie Ive been away for some time so havn't organised anything as yet. Could you get a ticket for me for this event (my +1 can no longer attend:( I assume that way the group will sit near each other. My email is [masked] If this is awkward let me know. Many thanks

    September 14, 2013

    • Hollie

      Hello Pam, not to worry about your guest. I will call the box office and order your ticket under my bank details but I don't believe we have allocated seat places because the hall is informal and based at Warwick School. I will email soon to for your address/details!

      September 16, 2013

  • Rachel H.

    If you could get me the tickets that would be great my email is [masked] - send me your bank details and I will transfer right away - thank you R

    August 22, 2013

    • Hollie

      Ok that's fine Rachel. Leave it with me.

      August 23, 2013

  • Hollie

    Wow, this looks like a good group! Rachel in answer to your message, (I hope you won't mind me responding here for all to see) the tickets are available now from the Box Office at said price+£2 extra for posting to you. If you still want me to get your ticket (s) as they have me on their system, then I can let you have my bank details separately. Of course you can bring someone!

    August 22, 2013

  • Pam M.

    Really look forward to this.

    1 · August 11, 2013

  • Hollie

    Tickets are £12 from Warwick Words. Box Office tel:[masked]

    I will be able to order/collect tickets following your payment (if needed). Please let me know by Mon 30th September. Many thanks and I look forward to seeing you there!
