Based on her new book, Me and My Mam, her talk will examine the relationship between a mother and daughter who cannot reconcile their differences. As the mundane fifties transform into the swinging sixties and the world begins to alter, their lives take unexpected turns that no one could have predicted.

The talk will be held on Zoom on May 6 at 7pm. Tickets are free and contact for the Zoom link.

Anne Wignall, chair of the Friends of Our Space, said: “We are delighted that Vicky has agreed to talk to us about her new book. For those of us of a certain age, it will bring back memories of a time that in many ways seems so long ago.”

The new book is a sequel to her first autobiographical novel It’s not a boy! but can be read without prior knowledge of the first book.

It can be bought online for £6.50 plus postage at Booka bookshop, or with Paypal from, or for £5 at Ellesmere Library after May 6.
