WITH a fea­ture film based on his life story and a num­ber of books to his name, the name James Bowen is prob­a­bly one you might have heard of re­cently.

Or per­haps a gin­ger street cat named Bob is more fa­mil­iar to you?

Get your­self over to Chor­ley­wood, in Hert­ford­shire, on Wed­nes­day Novem­ber 30 to get the chance to meet the star and au­thor of the in­ter- na­tional best sell­ing book, A Street Cat Named Bob.

James Bowen and his fe­line friend will be host­ing an evening at The Junc­tion Christ Church, which has been touted as the per­fect evening for the whole fam­ily.

When James found an injured, gin­ger street cat curled up in the hall­way of his shel­tered ac­com­mo­da­tion, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change.

He was liv­ing hand to mouth on the streets of Lon­don and the last thing he needed was a pet, but Bob had other ideas. Soon the two were in­sep­a­ra­ble and their di­verse, comic and oc­ca­sion­ally danger­ous ad­ven­tures would trans­form both their lives, slowly heal­ing the scars of each other’s trou­bled pasts. A Street Cat Named Bob is a mov­ing and up­lift­ing story that will touch the heart of any­one who reads it. Join the team in Chor­ley­wood and meet Eng­land’s most fa­mous gin­ger cat and his ador- ing owner. An adult ticket costs £10, a chil­dren’s ticket costs £5 and a fam- ily ticket £20. The book will be on sale on the night for £5.99.
