Nantwich author Joan Carter will launch her book ‘Life Zumba and Now’ at the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge on May 3, writes Jonathan White.

The 83-year-old will give a talk at the launch about her unusual autobiography which begins in the war years in Nantwich.

After witnessing ‘The Darkness’ and ‘The Light’, Joan goes on to consider meditation, theatre, mysticism, space and time, spirituality, philosophy, death, love and hope as she faces questions about Life, the Universe and Everything.

Denise Lawson, from the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge, said: “Joan is a really colourful character who doesn’t really need us to sell her book for her, she does a grand job herself.

“It would be lovely to see as many people from Nantwich support this lovely local Cheshire lady at her book launch on 3rd May.”

Other future author events at the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge include Friday April 19 when Linda Wall, author of “Around the World in 575 Songs” series, will talk about her four years gathering traditional music from every country in the world from Kazakhstan to Kiribati.
