At their fourth Literary Lunch, the WI Reading Group welcomed fellow – members , partners and friends to hear a talk by Tessa West.
After a delicious lunch prepared by the Group, Tessa entertained the company by telling them about her life and how she got into writing. She lives in Glemsford now and has published three novels set in East Anglia, a book of poetry and a biography of John Howard , the prison reformer. Having started life as a Primary School teacher and also teaching English in prisons, she has plenty of material for her work. By reading passages from her books, Tessa gave us an insight into the kinds of novels she writes and to the ideas behind the stories.
There were lots of questions from the audience and a chance to chat to Tessa and each other, as well as an opportunity to buy books.
