At Brixham Heritage Museum
Writing and Publishing in the West Country, a talk by local historian John Risdon
John’s involvement in publishing over the past 35 years has been within the factual word, very much associated with his beloved West Country.
Starting with small descriptive publications on Dartmoor’s environment and history, he moved on to a more thorough work specifically on the Dart estuary. In addition, with his involvement in West Country publishing and distribution, he was lucky enough to rub shoulders with many other local authors. His talk will be both an account of his experiences in writing and publishing but also a chance for informal discussion on the highs and lows of the reference book world.
This event is FREE of charge. No need to book, just turn up on the day.
Space is limited so come early to avoid disappointment
