Two Rivers, the banner for our book events, will be on display twice in Diss this summer. On Friday 16 June we will be joining forces with the Corn Hall to celebrate the life of Roger Deakin. The prolific author Patrick Barkham will talk about his new biography of our local hero (The Swimmer, published 25 May). And on a date still to be determined in July, we will be showcasing Ronald Blythe, who died in January, aged 100. We will screen the Peter Hall film of Blythe’s seminal book, Akenfield, with a panel of people who knew the prose stylist who Richard Mabey calls ‘our tribal storyteller’.
