Launching Spellbinder

Book two of Ghillian Potts’ young adult trilogy The Naming of Brook Storyteller, Spellbinder, is published on 7th December, and we are celebrating with two readings at Ashburton Library, Shirley Road, Croydon, CR9 7AL on the 7th. The first is for a local school, and the second, at 4pm, is public, anyone can come along, so we hope you will!

Brook, Brat, Spellbinder… storyteller, remembrancer, witness… with as many names as she has titles, Spellbinder is abducted by Westron Lord Arrow, who holds storytellers as hostages to force her to raise the Elder Dragons, but once they are called, Brook cannot control them.

Our reader for both events of the day is Patsy Prince, who has read for us several times before.

Books will be on sale.

Thanks to our friends at Croydon Libraries for their continued support!

 

Good Wolf People read The Old Woman from Friuli

This is what happens when you drop in on an interesting building for open house: you get talking to one of the trustees, who happen to mention that one of their resident organisations are doing a book event for children, so you send an email, and have a meeting and suddenly someone is reading the book in a library!

I like the serendipity of how this happened. A semi staged version has also been produced for which the video is on its way, but here in the meantime is John Handscombe taking on clever advisors, selfish dukes and wily old women.
