Excitement Builds for Thornspell Launch at Fendalt
Excitement Builds for Thornspell Launch at Fendalton Library!
Excitement is building ahead of Christchurch’s Fendalton Library's celebration of the United States publication and official New Zealand launch of Helen Lowe's, Thornspell, this Saturday, 20 September.
"Thornspell is a rich, swashbuckling, magical story," says librarian, Erin Vail, "and advance readers are already loving it. It's easy to see why Thornspell was picked up so quickly overseas—and it is very exciting for local readers to know that they can hear the story of an international book and talk to the author in person. And it has definitely added to the excitement to have the Society for Creative Anachronism sending along three of their "knights", in full armour, to act out the duel between hero and villain that takes place in the book. We think it's going to be a lot of fun!' she adds.
The Thornspell event will commence at 11.00 am. Fendalton Library is located on the corner of Clyde and Jeffreys Roads. The event is free.
