SATURDAY SIGNING – meet local writer S C Skillman

18 November 2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Come and meet author S C Skillman, who will be signing copies of her new book, A-Z of Warwick.

Aethelflaed, daughter of Alfred the Great, built her fortress Waeringwicum on the river Avon in the year 914; it grew into the town of Warwick. Her conquest of the Viking Danelaw secured the creation of the Kingdom of England.

Ever since then, Warwick has been at the centre of England’s history. After William the Conqueror ordered that a castle be built on Aethelflaed’s chosen site, that castle and the Earldom of Warwick became one of the highest prizes in the dangerous and treacherous power game played around the English throne for centuries.

Today, Warwick retains many of its beautiful historical buildings, and is packed with the richness of the human story besides being a lively modern town. Here in this book, you will find not only several of its most treasured ancient buildings and glorious gardens but also some outstanding examples of its people, commerce, creativity, science and endeavour, community events, birds, and animals. All of this is accompanied by my own photographs in full colour. My hope is that I have, through this book, given you a flavour of the life of Warwick and its people: past, present and future.
