Wilfred Cass reveals his journey through the worlds of art and publishing in his autobiography Here Comes Mr Cass. On Thursday 8th May, Wilfred will talk about this journey and sign copies of his new book at Waterstones, Chichester.
You know may know Wilfred as co-founder of Cass Sculpture Foundation, an independent body dedicated to commissioning new artwork. The Foundation’s 26 acre grounds in Goodwood, Chichester, is home to an exhibit of 80 sculptures that changes regularly. Since 1992, the Foundation has helped to produce over 400 works from emerging and established artists.
The sculpture park is one of Chichester Copywriter’s favourite South Downs walks – there is always something new and exciting to see behind the next tree. It is a real treat for the senses and somewhere that Katy likes to go for a bit of creative writing inspiration.
If this extract from a preview of Here Come Mr Cass is anything to go by, Wilfred’s talk at Waterstones sounds like it is not-to-be-missed:
“In an extraordinary career spanning more than seven decades, Wilfred Cass has moved with equal ease from the factory floor to the boardroom, from Army fatigues to Savile Row suits, and from collecting Dinky toys to Henry Moores.”
Tickets are on sale for £3 and are available at Waterstones, West Street, Chichester. Tickets are also redeemable against a purchase of the book made on the night. Please call 01243 773030 for more information.
