Welney writer Lisa Woods is holding a book launch party at Babylon Gallery in Ely this weekend.
Held from 5pm on Saturday October 7 – at the same time as the gallery’s Picasso selling exhibition - the launch will provide readers with an opportunity to buy her recently published book ‘Tales from Plover Cottage’.
There will be a short reading of part of the stories followed by a Prosecco celebration. The free event is open to the public.
The book is a collection of prize-winning and acclaimed short stories drawing on the history and myths of the East Anglian countryside. It includes a mixture of tales that have supernatural themes and unexpected endings.
As well as stories that leave a spine tingling chill of fear the writer produces stories filled with emotion that manage to be heart-warming and heart wrenching at the same time.
Through her book, Lisa hopes to show visitors and residents the beauty and hidden history of the local rural area. When not writing, Lisa is an English lecturer at a local college.
