Book events at Diss Publishing Bookshop & Café
Here at Diss Publishing we host a variety of book events including signings, talks and children’s activities covering a wide selection of interests.  We look forward to welcoming you to one of our forthcoming events.


Saturday 16th October – 12-2pm
Charles Christian: Shuckland
Shuckland: Weird tales, ghosts, folklore and legends from East Anglia’s Waveney valley. It’s harder to find ghosts and legends closer to home than this fascinating anthology. With illustrations and maps to help immerse the reader in all the strange tales here on our doorstep.


Saturday 30th October – 11am-1pm
Judi Daykin: Wayland Babes
Five ghostly tales tell of five lives touched over five centuries by the tragic tale of the ‘babes in the wood’. Wayland Woods in Norfolk – an ancient place where sound and silence, truth and myth, and life and death intertwine.


Saturday 13th November – 11am-1pm
Pauline Manders: Utterly Dredged
The latest in Pauline Manders’ Utterly crime series. Set locally in Suffolk, we follow well known characters as they solve their latest mystery. A man is found with his head submerged in a moat about to be dredged near Eye. Could laughing gas actually be the murder weapon?


Saturday 20th November – 12-2pm
Elaine Murphy – Wingfield: Suffolk’s Forgotten Castle
The author of Monks Hall and The Moated Grange returns with a new history, featuring her trademark meticulous research into a single place. This book is as much about the story of Suffolk and its changing society as it is about the castle itself.


Saturday 27th November – 12pm-2pm
Tina Newman: Vivi the Supervegan
Follow Vivi on her adventures as she makes it her mission to save animals whilst trying to stay out of trouble at the same time! For preschoolers and young primary aged children.

Author event - John Bridges

23rd February 2019, 10am - 1pm

John Bridges’ book A Suffolk Town in Wartime: Framlingham 1939-45 looks at the arrival of evacuees, the declaration of war through to the demolition of pillboxes and air raid shelters.

The book contains fascinating detail from Framlingham’s wartime history, including the work of the local Air Raid Precautions, bombing raids, the billeting of soldiers, the arrival of the US Air Force at Parham and more.

Mr Bridges' family’s Framlingham connection dates back to the early 18th century. In this book he has called upon his local knowledge and discovered unrecorded experiences of local men and women from that time. He has also analysed many documents, some of them rare official publications, and in doing so has produced an important record for our increased understanding of wartime conditions in a small Suffolk town, always close to the front line and, on occasion, within the danger zone.
