This year's Essex Book Festival has been one of the most successful in our seventeen-year history. Loved meeting Hannah Lowe at Shenfield Library last week especially as had already listened to her award winning new book broadcast on BBC Radio 4's BOOK OF THE WEEK programme. Really clever stuff - fascinating story. We had a good chat with her in the green room and listened to her talk a little later in the library. Members of our Billericay Book Club came along which was great. Hannah's book LONG TIME NO SEE was also included in our own monthly radio slot on Phoenix 98fm with presenter Michelle Ward.
