A book reading by Elizabeth Garner
Elizabeth Garner is the author of two novels: Nightdancing and the Ingenious Edgar Jones, both of which were influenced by traditional Folk Tale narratives and motifs.
Lost & Found is her first collection of rewritten stories. Elizabeth grew up in the Old Medicine House in Goostrey, now home to the Blackden Trust – where she is the Arts Trustee. Phoebe Connolly’s illustrations (on display in the Goosfest Art Exhibition) feature elements of the landscape and buildings of Blackden, in homage to Elizabeth’s childhood influences. Elizabeth will be reading exerts from the folk tales and discussing the research that went into her book. Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
