'Everywhere is extraordinary. You only have to scrape the surface.' Award-winning writer Pauline Fisk spent a year recording all the remarkable, innovative, controversial, overlooked, important or fleeting things that caught her attention in her home-town Shrewsbury during the course of a single year. Her resulting popular blog, My Tonight from Shrewbury, documented her take on this medieval county town in mid-Shropshire, in the very centre of England. The result is a fascinating snapshot of town life in 2013: Pauline discovered dentists who conjure, portrait-painting hairdressers, reminiscences of old Shrewsbury, a hidden underground antiques market, an Orthodox icon painter, modern urban explorers of the medieval rooftops and much, much more.
