Kerry Darbishire and I met yesterday to make final preparations for the launch of Kay’s Ark. It will be on sale from September 19th – not long now! To say that this book has been a labour of love sounds like a cliché, but in this case it truly has. Kerry tells the story of her extraordinary mother, Kay, with great tenderness but never over sentimentalises – it is an absorbing read. Ashley Holden from Chesters at Skelwith Bridge, where Kay is still remembered, describes it as ‘a lovely book ….and so fascinating’.
Book signings have been arranged so do come along to meet Kerry and buy her book. Dates are:-
Thursday 22nd September. Sam Read Book Seller, Grasmere. 2.30-5pm
Saturday 24th September. Sutton’s Bookshop. Ulverston. 11-1pm
Saturday 1st October. Just for Ewe. Coniston. 1-3pm
Saturday 8th October. Ambleside Library. 10.30 – 12noon.
We hope to see you there.
