Discover 'What the Wind Saw', a collection of Middle-Hertfordshire inspired short stories by Zoe Jasko in this upcoming literary exhibition opening Friday 19 July.

Join us as we wander the pages of stories, celebrating towns and villages, local landmarks and the rich history of Welwyn, Hatfield and beyond. From Roman invasion to Ebeneezer Howard's Garden City legacy we take you on a journey, uncovering people and places along the way.

The exhibition will be complimented by a full programme of events. Listings and tickets for these will appear on the museum's What's On pages in June.

Admission is included in Mill entry ticket. Event tickets are priced separately but include Mill and exhibition entry.

I am absolutely thrilled that What the Wind Saw: Short Stories from the Heart of Hertfordshire is the subject of Mill Green and Watermill’s upcoming exhibition July to December 2024 : What the Wind Saw: A Literary Journey through Middle-Hertfordshire.

NEW RELEASE : 14th June 2024

The Portraits on the Wall Cover 01.png

In five beautifully observed stories, Zoë Jasko’s third book for adults explores the relationships between people and their pets and why the love they share is so frequently celebrated in painting.

Paco: Bartolo and his pet dog teach headstrong Consuela to dance flamenco at the Seville April Fair – to her parents’ disgust.

Percival: Emily, unhappy in a stale marriage, buys a painting of a sheep at an art show which leads to an unexpected chain of events.

Guy: Edward lives with his parrot on a houseboat near Keswick. Their secret threatens to destroy a special relationship.

Smokey: Derek, retired and widowed, has a date with Jenny. All seems to go well until he meets her cat.

Winnie: Anna is desperate to keep her dog safe when the bombs fall during the Blitz. She will go to any lengths.

Publication date : 14th June 2024

“These stories of love, friendship, acceptance, loss and personal growth stir more feelings than I can name, leaving my jaw aching from smiling and my eyes stinging with tears.”

Ferne Animal Sanctuary Ambassador

Through my research for my ‘Winnie’ story in The Portraits on the Wall I learnt about the Ferne Animal Sanctuary at Chard in Somerset. I now have the huge pleasure of announcing that I have accepted the invitation to become an ambassador for this fantastic charity.

 

Ferne:

  • Rescues and cares for pet and farm animals that have been abandoned/ poorly treated and finds them new homes

  • Helps pets whose owners can no longer look after them

  • Educates all ages how to be a responsible pet owner

  • Has wonderful land management of their beautiful acreage in Somerset

  • Was founded by a woman of passion during the second world war

  • Has thrived for over 80 years thanks to the help of people of passion

 

This little charity needs help more than ever now to keep helping pets and their owners. We all want to see it thrive for another 80 years and beyond.
