Phil Janaway, Jo Bavington-Jones and Simon Pollard
Submitted to Dover Express
Three authors from three coastal towns in East Kent, with very different writing styles, participated in a joint book launch at the Holiday Inn in Whitfield.
Phil Janaway of Dover, Jo Bavington-Jones of Folkestone and Simon Pollard of Deal accepted the invitation of Gillian Pollard of the Rotary Club of Dover to speak about their new books at the literary event.
Daughter of a former owner of the Dover Express, Jo Bavington-Jones has just published her third book, The way to write to die. Folkestone’s triennial art installations form the backdrop to his first mysterious murder.
The retired assistant principal of Astor School in Dover, Phil Janaway began compiling his book for a failed doctorate, then spent three years tweaking and improving it for publication.
Martin Heidegger and his quest for the truth of being focuses on the thoughts and works of the German philosopher, who at one time was a supporter of the Nazi Party.
The third of the trio of authors was Simon Pollard, a wildlife and garden expert from Deal. His new book, The view on the wall, is a campaign celebration that he hopes will persuade readers to ask questions about the world they live in.
The authors were interviewed by John Hunniset and Jodi Linguard, followed by an interesting and entertaining question-and-answer session. All three reported good sales.
