Ryhope Heritage Society are pleased to welcome the award winning author Glenda Young on Tuesday June 14th 2022 to give a talk called “Writing Historical Fiction Set in Ryhope” with Slides.

Glenda was born and brought in Ryhope and still has family living there. Her books are set in Ryhope around one hundred years ago, at the end of WW1.

You will recognise many of the sites in her books including Tunstall Street, Ryhope Colliery, the Co-op and many Ryhope Pubs. We are proud to have Glenda as a member of Ryhope Heritage Society and if you want to hear what Glenda has coming in the next year at Ryhope Heritage come along.
