Berwick is a place I love to visit. My family and I try to visit at least once a year, and sometimes make it a few times. For families it is great. The beach is very accessible to the town, there are some good walks for a nice summer evening, and the castle walls are a sight to be seen.
It is also a town steeped in history. Many people are confused about whether it is part of Scotland or England, and walking around the town you get the feeling the town is unsure also. The accents are mixed; some Scots, some English, some a mixture of the two. Both Scottish and English banks have a presence in Berwick, and we can happily pay for goods with Scottish notes without getting strange looks from shop staff who think we are handing them funny money.
At the end of this month, 30th March at 2pm to be precise, I will be holding an author event at Berwick Library and Tourist Information, on Walkergate in the town centre. This will involve me speaking for a bit on my book, The King with the Iron Belt, with time for a short question and answer session afterwards, and of course signed copies of the book to buy.
Tickets are free and can be booked in advance at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/meet-the-author-jackie-cosh-at-berwick-library-tickets-56419872357
It would be lovely to see you there.
