Meet the Author – Anne Shooter

Sunday June 20

Join us at 5.30pm when Joan Noble will interview Anne Shooter.

Anne Shooter had been a journalist at the Daily Mail for almost 20 years when she decided to follow her passion for cooking and train to be a chef at Leith’s School of Food and Wine at the age of 40. Since then she has had two cookery books published, Sesame & Spice – a book of Jewish baking – and Cherish, a collection of Jewish recipes from family, friends and communities all over the world.

Her recipes span from traditional Jewish food, often with its roots in Eastern Europe, to more modern creations, using spices and ingredients more in line with those used in Israel and other parts of the Middle East. All of her dishes are quick, simple and foolproof: As a working wife and mum she has no interest in food that needs hard-to-find ingredients or takes too long to prepare!

Western perceptions of biblical events from the Renaissance to the present day by Adam Green

Join us at 5.30pm for Adam’s presentation

Adam’s talk is about two of his greatest passions – art and biblical criticism – concentrating on the role of fine art (including sculpture), literature and cinema upon our perceptions of Bible texts and personalities.

Adam is an artist, illustrator and author, who trained at St. Martins School of Art and has exhibited in the UK and overseas. His patrons include the late Duke of Devonshire and the governments of Israel and Chile. One highpoint was designing the cover for the UK paperback edition of the novel, Billy Bathgate.

Adam lived in Israel in 1970 and then again from 2009 until 2012, and recently spent two years in Sweden. He currently divides his time between London, Oxford and southern Spain where Adam makes Moscatel wine. His first book, King Saul – The True History of the First Messiah was published to critical acclaim in 2007, and in 2014 Adam published his first novel – ARK (previously, The Sons of Kohath).

He recently attended the Morris Collins talks on Eccentric Collections and thought – “hang on a minute I’ve got loads of stuff and promptly went off to produce a book through the decades of ephemera, memorabilia and more.

Memorabilia, Ephemera???  Many (including his long-suffering wife) would call it rubbish…let us know what you think.
