Spread the love

Sue Lake at one of Frost Magazine’s favourite bookshop, the award winning White Rose BookCafe, Thirsk, was thrilled when publishers, Pan Macmillan confirmed that the international bestselling author, Joanna Trollope agreed to attend this event at St Mary’s Church, Thirsk on:

 Wednesday 21 February 2018.

She said ‘We are thrilled to be hosting this event at St Mary’s Church, and so excited that those attending can purchase the new book before its official national release date.”  She continued “as well as raising funds for our beautiful church, which as well as a magnificent place of worship is also a great venue for this event”

It will be a chance for those attending to meet this acclaimed author and get a personally signed copy of her new book ‘An Unsuitable Match’.   ‘Nobody writes about family tensions better than Joanna Trollope’ Good Housekeeping.

‘An Unsuitable Match’ by number one bestselling author Joanna Trollope, is an uplifting story of love, family and second chances. Two families, one proposal, a decision that could pull them apart. The much-anticipated novel from the Number One Bestselling author of City of Friends.  Joanna Trollope will engage in light hearted chat and interesting book discussion during the evening.

Sue Lake is also pleased to be supporting the local church, by holding the event at the atmospheric Grade 1 listed, St Mary’s Church in Thirsk, which took 50 years to build and was completed in 1480, so for 538 years the church has served the needs of Thirsk and its worshipping community.   The daily running or St Mary’s is organised by a small number of regular attenders who organise the maintenance, repairs, outreach and other financial outgoings to keep the church in working order.  They have no support from outside agencies, and the costs are not met by the Church Commissioners, and it costs around £1,000 per month to run St Mary’s.  With this in mind the church committee are keen to have the wonderful building used for more public events to raise funds and awareness.
