Launch of Winegarden a novel by Anthony Ferner

September 25, 2015

We’re inviting you to join us at the launch of Winegarden by Anthony Ferner on Sunday 25 October at 2pm in the Assembly Hall at the Town Hall, the Parade, Leamington Spa, CV32 4AT.


Winegarden recounts episodes in the life of Jacob Winegarden, an agnostic Jewish professor of theoretical physics whose speciality is ‘thought experimentation’. The novel tells a larger personal story of grief and survival, the ambivalence and persistence of love, and the meaning of being Jewish.

‘An extraordinary piece of work: clever, entertaining, dramatic and moving.’ – Alan Mahar
