Felix The Railway Cat

Author:

Kate Moore

Synopsis:

When Felix arrived at Huddersfield train station as an eight-week-old kitten, no one knew just how important this little ball of fluff would become.

For Felix has changed the lives of her colleagues and the station's commuters in surprising ways. Felix seems to have a remarkable ability to save the day time and time again: from bringing a boy with autism out of his shell, to providing comfort to a runaway child shivering on the platform one night. But it's a chance friendship with a commuter who she waits for on the platform every morning that finally gives Felix the recognition she deserves, catapulting her to international stardom...

Julian Norton has been a vet for over twenty years, and in that time he has treated animals of every kind - snakes and lizards, fish and fowl, sheep, goats, alpacas, cows, horses - you name it, Julian has seen it and, most likely, made it better. In A YORKSHIRE VET THROUGH THE SEASONS, Julian recounts more inspirational tales from his life, the animals he has treated and the people he has met, including the challenges and surprises that occur at the most unlikely times. Whether he is tending to a domestic pet at his practice in Thirsk, or called out to an injured swan in the middle of a cold Yorkshire night, the animals always come first, and Julian's passion and commitment are always to the fore.

Reading Allowed

Author:

Chris Paling

Synopsis:

When novelist Chris Paling went for a job at his local library, he anticipated a quiet life - but soon discovered that the reality was somewhat different. He found that at times the library is an extension of A&E, while at other times it's a hostel for the homeless; a psychiatric ward; a crime scene; a study hall; a place of safety; a boxing ring; a confessional booth; a theatre space; a venue for knitting and book groups; and an information hub for people trying to find a long-lost relative or a job. From street sleepers like Brewer who use the 'fiction' stacks as their living room, to the lonely who drift in for their only conversation of the day, READING ALLOWED shows that libraries are full of stories - not all of them in books.

Everywoman

Author:

Jess Phillips

Synopsis:

If you're thinking, "Jess, who?" then I'm glad that there was something about "Everywoman" and "truth" that caught your eye. Or you might know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about stuff I care about. I have been called a feminazi witch and a murderer, and been threatened with rape. So, speaking the truth isn't always easy, but I believe it's worth it. And I want you to believe it too. The truth can be empowering, the truth can lead to greater equality, and the world would be incredibly boring if we let all of those people who allegedly know everything, say everything. By demanding to be heard, by being doers not sayers, and by daring to believe that we can make a difference - we can.
