Summer Signings. Devon author, Liz Shakespeare bringing new life to Devon's past.

One Devon author is looking forward to a busy summer. Liz Shakespeare, who specialises in breathing life into true stories from Devon’s past, 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, ‘Writing is a solitary activity, so I really look forward to opportunities to meet readers when I give talks or attend 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. Her most recent book The Song of the Skylark tells the true story of a young girl who was sent out as a parish apprentice to work on a remote Devon farm.

‘I am currently working on my seventh book,’ Liz said. ‘Each book takes around three years to research and write, so it will be a while before this one is ready to publish.’

Liz will be signing copies of all six of her books at the following events:

  • Magpie Marquee at the Mid-Devon Show on July 23rd
  • North Devon Show on August 3rd
  • Appledore Food and Craft Market on August 6th
  • Hartland Farmers’ Market on August 7th
  • Okehampton Show on August 11th
  • Chagford Show on August 18th
  • Ashwater Show on August 20th
  • North Molton Country Fair on August 21st
  • Holsworthy Show on August 25th
  • Torridge Art and Craft Market on August 27th
  • Lustleigh Show on August 29th
  • Appledore Food and Craft Market on September 3rd
  • Clovelly Lobster and Crab Feast on September 4th
