The Médiatheque, Cavalaire sur Mer
Local author C. E. Ayr presents a literary event with a difference.
He will read, in English, from his recently published work, Medville Matters.
His agent, editor, and best friend Emmy L Gant, will support him by reading French translations of these short tales.
Ayr will discuss his writing in a Q&A session, and will sign copies of the book for interested parties.
A Scot who has discovered Paradise in a small town he calls Medville on the Côte d’Azur, C.E. Ayr has spent a large part of his life in the West of Scotland and a large part elsewhere.
He is somewhat nomadic, fairly irresponsible and, according to his darling daughter, a bit random.
He calls his stories Sound Bite Fiction, because the tales are short, sparse and to the point, many of them less than one page in length.
They are written or based in his current home on the Cote d’Azur, and herald a new approach to storytelling.
He explains where he finds his inspiration.
‘All around me, in the natural world and in people.
I see the Mediterranean with her moods.
I contemplate placid beaches and raucous calanques, sombre trees and laughing birds.
I walk ports of singing masts and hill towns of ancient dramas.
I meet people, each with a unique history, and I see love and betrayal, intrigue, desire and murder.
This is my life.’
So, La Médiatheque, Cavalaire sur Mer, June 16th, at 14.00 (2 o’clock), to meet the author and the charming Emmy.
You will hear some thought-provoking stories, have a few laughs, and taste some genuine Scottish fare, provided courtesy of the venue.
Which is at the port, on the Rue du Port, just past the Casino.
