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.

Patsy Prince

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