Monthly Meeting: My Family & Other Setbacks! – Mel Rees

Date and time: 15th October 2019 from 2:30 pm until 4:30 pm

Cost: £2.00

My Family & Other Setbacks! is a light-hearted look at life, children who won’t leave home (and having done so, still cling onto your wallet) and parents who look set to outlive you – with a touch of snobbery thrown in for good measure!

Mel writes under the pseudonym Anthony Mann, he says…

“…there are a series of six books, the two most recent being, In Bed With A. Mann, Part 1 – Pre-Referendum and In Bed With A. Mann, Part 2 – Post-Referendum, the latter being published last month. These are a humorous look at life in our ‘septic isles’ as I see it”

“one of my books received WH Smith’s ‘Book of the Month’, and a novel I have written under my own name, The Club – An Everyday Story of Trainspotters, achieved the Sunday Express ‘Book of the Week’.”

Mel splits his time three-ways – as well as being an after-dinner speaker and author, he is also a tour guide at the Hog’s Back Brewery, close to Farnham, in Surrey, a job he has very happily performed for 17 years.
