READING BETWEEN THE LINES: WHAT YOUR HANDWRITING SAYS ABOUT YOU
JERSEY LIBRARY / SATURDAY 29 SEPTEMBER / 16.00
Join Emma Bache at Jersey Library to discover what your handwriting reveals about you.
Are you creative, with a strong imagination? Or easily distracted and oversensitive? Do you have a strong physical and sexual drive? Are you – secretly – far less confident than you appear? How well do you work as part of a team? How suited are you, really, to your partner? Who is the office sociopath? The answer to all these questions and many more can be revealed by your handwriting.
Handwriting is something of a dying art nowadays, as we tap messages to each other day after day. But every aspect of penmanship – the height of an ‘h’, the curliness of a ‘g’, the pressure of the pen on the paper – is a collection of involuntary signals. The way we write can tell the world a huge amount; sometimes more than the things we write about.
The UK’s leading handwriting expert, Emma Bache has worked as a graphologist since 1989, analysing handwriting in both the Corporate and private sectors. With additional qualifications in Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy, Emma has helped to solve cases of fraud for both private individuals and the corporate world, giving a valuable insight into the criminal mind. She has had her own columns in The Times and the Financial Times and has written for other major publications such as the Daily Mail, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian and Cosmopolitan. She has made frequent TV and Radio appearances, including GMTV’s This Morning, BBC’s History Hunter and Radio 4’s Today Programme.

Heather Morton is the author of a new book, scheduled for publication later this year, that tells the story of German soldiers and sailors imprisoned in Jersey. We are familiar with German rule during the Occupation, but this part of Jersey’s role in the First World War is less well known. There are other stories too, of prisoners, escapes, military funerals and living on the sand dunes – behind barbed wire. Even earlier Neolithic families squeeze into the picture.

Simon, a successful accountant, has a big problem. The biggest of them all. He checks himself into Orchard Care Home whilst still relatively healthy, the youngest resident by decades. He’s confident he cut all ties with the outside world and is untraceable. Emma, married with no kids, lives, breathes and manages Orchard Care Home; a position her husband, Michael, used to hold in the good old days. But now he’s soared up the company hierarchy she sees so much less of him.
The attraction between carer and resident is instant, but ultimately destined for catastrophe. Alzheimer’s takes no prisoners and Early Onset, it’s most tragic form, is the cruellest of all. How can Michael feel threatened by Simon? And what future could Emma have with him? Simon understands less and less, but knows he has to try and run away from time – to somehow beat the ceaseless clock.
Tony Le Moignan on his debut novel, A Long Goodbye, which looks at Early Onset Alzheimer’s and the impact it has on those living with the condition and those close to them.
