Ros Green and her team at Essex Book Festival have pulled off another excellent month of fabulous events across the county (and there are still a couple of days left - check out www.essexbookfestival.org.uk)
For me, it has been a pleasure, once again - I think for our 19th year - that I have visited some of our most interesting Essex venues and met authors, performers and readers from many literary and entertainment fields. It's always lovely to meet a first time author and it was great to meet a pal, the publisher Una Rose (Estuary Publishing) and her latest author Patricia Volante with her new title - hot off the press - ROSSI'S The Story of Southend's Favourite Ice Cream.
On Saturday last at Chelmsford Library, Patricia happily signed copies of her book, which is already in the bookshops, providing a a super gift for Southend residents and those who enjoy family history - this family is fascinating! www.estuarypublishing.
