CAGS Monthly Meeting

Tuesday, 20 March 2018 - 8:00pm

Guest speaker will be author Mark Johnson, talking about his debut novel and how he came to write it. Changing Trains will transport you back to the 1980s, and one working class boy's coming-of-age journey of discovery and sexual self-awareness.After a busy week in the newsroom, editor Sam is looking forward to relaxing on his regular Eurostar journey from London to his second home in the south west of France. But a chance encounter at the busy station compels him back to a time in the 1980s, when he travelled parts of Europe by train alone and in search of adventure, self-discovery and his place in the world.

In a sun-kissed, coming-of-age story set in a time just before mobile devices, the internet and social media, Sam travels across Europe, with its varied currencies, border controls and strange cultures, keen to better understand his own nature and his relationship with others in a new, emerging world.

Mark Johnson is a Scottish born journalist, writer and broadcaster. He's spent most of his career covering the financial markets in the City of London and around the world. He now lives between London and New Aquitaine in France, traveling often by Eurostar and TGV and longs for the day when he doesn’t have to ‘change trains’ to get to the south west.
