Join us and 3 expert journalists on Wednesday, 13 October at 19h30 CET for an in-person and online discussion about President Biden’s attempt to reset America's place in a new decade of global collaboration, with a focus on his exit from Afghanistan and recent alliance with Great Britain and Australia.

Don't Miss the Chance to Book This One. Seriously, this is a neat show! Take a journey through time with author David Ebsworth to the dark days of 1939 and beyond as he talks about the background to his highly-acclaimed tenth novel, A Betrayal of Heroes. Travel from Oran in North Africa, to Casablanca and Brazzaville, to rainy East Yorkshire, and then from the beaches of Normandy to the Liberation of Paris in 1944. Meet the unsung heroes of this saga - veterans of the Spanish Civil War, Jewish Resistance fighters, the Equatorial Africans of Free France, the women in the front lines, and the French Desert Fox, General Leclerc. Rub shoulders with the real-life celebrities who fill the book's pages alongside its fictional protagonist, Jack Telford - Josephine Baker, Leslie Howard, John Steinbeck and many more. Revel in the action and intrigue, love and loss - and some humour too - of David Ebsworth's storytelling. Bookings for live events now being taken. No fee for libraries, U3A meetings and other not-for-profit organisations - but it's always good to have help with petrol costs and a cup of tea for venues far from North Wales. Let me know!

Join professor and publisher Sylvie Le Bon de Beauvoir along with author and New Yorker staff writer Judith Thurman as they discuss Les Inséparables, a novel by Simone de Beauvoir written in 1954 and released for the first time this fall. Written in 1951, five years after the publication of The Second S*x, Les Inséparables tells the story of the “passionate and tragic” friendship de Beauvoir had as a young girl with Elisabeth Lacoin “Zaza”, who died at the age of 21. This conversation will be in English and will take place on Zoom. A link will be emailed to you after you purchase a copy of Les Inséparables at Albertine.

Passport Magazine, America’s #1 gay and le***an travel magazine, has selected The Fourth Courier as one of February’s best books and picked it for the “Airplane Read of the Month”! Thanks again to the American Library for helping to launch this novel. Here’s Passport Magazine's review: Timothy Jay Smith’s The Fourth Courier would be a page-turner of the first order even without its intriguing parallels to today’s fraught relationship between the U.S. and Russia. Set in Warsaw, four months after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the action takes place in a veritable Wild West of arms trafficking and other skullduggery. A gay black C.I.A. agent partners with a white F.B.I. agent to help the new Solidarity government in Poland to investigate a series of murders that turn out to be connected to uranium smuggling and a plot to build an atomic bomb. C.I.A. man Kurt Crawford leverages both aspects of his double-minority status to access secret information in the Eastern Bloc. While F.B.I. man Jay Porter is the novel’s lead character, Smith’s inclusion of a major gay protagonist is more than welcome in a smart, commercial thriller marketed to mainstream audiences. Smith is terrific in evoking the bleak but optimistic post-Cold War atmosphere of Poland and his plot twists and turns with an elegant but unpredictable precision.
