Book event for 'Brunt Boggart: A Tapestry of Tales'

Brunt Boggart is a tapestry of folktales, myths and storytelling. The connecting thread follows Greychild, abandoned in the woods by his mother. Mistaken for a wolf, he is taken to Brunt Boggart, a village of primal energies where people live close to the land - but sets off along the Pedlar Mans Track to the city of Arleccra. The harbour fills with ships of fire, stars spin and wheel - and he is back in Brunt Boggart again, out under the season's moon. His mother is not there, but Greychild finally discovers the identity of his father.
This is a masterful piece of storytelling, image-rich, powerful and moving. Once you breathe the air of Brunt Boggart, it will never leave you.
Recommended ages 14 and above.

There will be a chance to hear readings from the book, along with live music from acclaimed folk singer/songwriter Emily Portman.
This will be a FREE event, and all are welcome.
