Book signing at Village Bookshop IG8 0XE

A much-loved children's author met fans in a Woodford Green bookshop
Wednesday 16 December 2009
FANS flocked to see one of their favourite authors in the flesh at a special book signing this week.
Jack Trelawny made an appearance at the Village Bookshop in High Road, Woodford Green on Saturday December 12, where he signed copies of his latest work, 'Colosseum of Dread'.
The new title is the sixth and final instalment of the Kernowland saga, and all the young people who came for the event, including ten-year-old Lorcan Canavan of St Antony's Catholic Primary School in Woodford Green, were eager to find out what happens.
Owner Alison Lawrence said: “We were delighted to have Jack Trelawny visit us to sign copies of his Kernowland series of books. Jack is a very popular local author and has faithfully included us in every one of his signing tours.
“It was a big day for us as 'Colosseum of Dread' is the final adventure in the series and the big question was: “Would Tizzie and Louis, the heroine and hero of the stories, get safely back to Cornwall?”. You will have to read the books to find out!”

For more information call Alison on 020 8506 0551 or email books@thevillagebookshop.co.uk.

SPECIAL GUEST: Popular author inspires youngsters after school visit

Popular author inspires youngsters after school visit
DOZENS of budding young writers have been inspired to put pen to paper after a top children's author paid a visit to their school.
   Jack Trelawny, who wrote the popular Kernowland fantasy adventure series, entertained youngsters at Bancroft's Prep School with a talk on his life and work.
   Children at the school, in Woodford Green, were also given useful hints and tips on how to write their own work by the author, who has just had the sixth book in the popular series The Colosseum of Dread published.
   Peter Hough, 10, said: "The books he writes seem to be more than mere adventure stories.
   "There was real suspense in the chapters he read out.
   "I want to write my own cliff-hangers now too."
   Tom Draper, 10, was equally inspired. He said: "He really inspired me. I am definitely going to start writing my own book after that visit."
   School spokeswoman Karen Rogers said: "He told them how he gets his ideas and thinks up the exciting plots of his Kernowland books.
   "He also read them extracts from his stories which left them eager to read more for themselves.
   "Mr Trelawny is a very busy author. He said that his aim is to give the children 'edutainment' and to create excitement about learning in his young audience.
   "He certainly did this at Bancroft's where there was a real buzz amongst our 220 pupils."
   Mr Trelawny will be visiting the Village Bookshop in Woodford Green on Saturday December 12 from 10am to 11.30am.
