WELWYN Hatfield authors will sign copies of their latest books and share advice at a bookshop in Welwyn Garden City.
Local Authors Day takes place at The Bookshop, in the Howards Centre, on Saturday and writers from the area will be dishing out advice.
Between 10am and 2pm, seven authors from the genres of biography, fiction, inspirational, poetry and art will be at the shop signing copies of their latest works.
Kicking off the sessions at 10am will be Anne Straithe, author of Birdie Bowers: Captain Scott’s Marvel, which tells the little known tale of Henry ‘Birdie’ Bowers, who joined Scott on his Terra Nova voyage to the Antarctic.
Flying the flag for fiction will be James Barthlomeusz and Sandra Christina Shaw, who will talk for an hour from 11am.
Mr Bartholomeusz, a student who released the second instalment of his Seven Stars Trilogy of books last year, will sign copies of his novels The White Fox and The Black Rose, which have also be published as e-books.
Ms Shaw will share her latest children’s book Pom-Pom the Podgy Bear, which she hopes will be the first of many centring on the cute character.
From noon to 1pm self-help author James Koumis will introduce his book How to Live the Life You Deserve and his new children’s book The Family Who Are Living Their Dreams, which both emphasis the power of positive thinking.
Rose Todd will also speak about life and the law of attraction while promoting her latest book This and That, a collection of personal stories.
And rounding off the day will be poet Natasha Wilde with her new volume of poetry and Lucy Swinburne’s Drawing Masterclass: Animals will bring the talks to a close.
