A CHILDREN’S author from Kings Worthy will launch her new book with a short reading at a Winchester bookshop.

Lesley York will read from Emily’s Shopping Surprise at P&G Wells on College Street on September 11 at 10.30am.

She said: “I am very excited about the book launch, and a bit nervous, although this is my third book, I have only done two book launches, the thing that worries me the most is that no one turns up, so I am hoping people are interested.

“I will be doing a short reading from the book, there will be colouring sheets with puppies on for the children, also I will be giving away a free signed copy of my last book Henry the Naughty Raven Stories with every purchase of Emily’s Shopping Surprise.”
