Recently, local author John Chislett launched his new novel in the Waterfront, Porthcawl.

John signed copies of his book and gave a talk on the background of the novel to those attending.

The novel is set in Ireland, mainly in the 18th century, but has some 20th century settings. John researched the Irish revolution of 1798 and said that not many people know that there were more killed in the Irish revolution than the American and French revolutions put together. This gave him the focus for his novel.
