Event full Summer for 'Books from Devon' author, Liz Shakespeare

As Covid restrictions ease, one Devon author is looking forward to meeting readers again. Liz Shakespeare, whose books are inspired by the people, history and landscapes of Devon, will be attending a number of events this summer to sign copies of her books and to talk to members of the public.

Liz said, ‘Over the past year I have been able to continue writing, and I published my most recent book The Song of the Skylark in October 2020 with a launch on Zoom, but I have missed meeting readers at my usual talks and book signings throughout Devon.

She has written six books set in Devon, bringing to life the stories she finds in old newspapers, on gravestones and in parish records. Liz has a long Devon ancestry which she feels has given her a good understanding of the county and its people. The Song of the Skylark tells the true story of a young girl sent out as a parish apprentice to work on a remote Devon farm.

Liz will be signing copies of all six of her books in the Magpie Marquee at the following events:
  • Mid-Devon Show on July 24th
  • Hartland Farmers’ Market on August 1st
  • Sidmouth Folk Festival on August 2nd
  • Honiton Show on August 5th and 6th
  • Clovelly Maritime Festival on August 8th
  • Okehampton Show on August 12th
  • Bideford Pannier Market on August 21st
  • North Molton Country Fair on August 22nd 
  • High Bickington Fete on August 28th
