The Spoon Stealer Book Launch

Leigh Library
2.30 pm to 4.30 pm

Celebrate the release of ‘The Spoon Stealer’ by Lesley Crewe.

The author, who is travelling from Nova Scotia in Canada to attend this event, will talk about why the story is set in 1968 Leigh-on-Sea, what her personal connection is with our corner of the world and why it was so important to her that she brings the story home to the UK.

The story centres around Emmeline Darling who signs up for a memoir writing course where she meets some women who soon become friends. As she regales them with her tales of tears and triumph, they are spell-bound.

There will be sandwiches and tea, and books available for sale and signing.
