Lady Mayor and HW launch

Madam Mayor, Cllr Rosemary Farmer, congratulating Harpenden Writers on the publication of their Anthology, ‘The Words’

Local authors and poets from Harpenden Writers will be gathering in Harpenden Books at 48, High Street this Saturday morning, between 10.30am and 12:30pm. They will be on hand – not all at once, but taking it in turns – to talk about the collective efforts behind the publishing of the Anthology and to share personal stories of their own contributions to the volume.

So, come along to this welcoming and inspiring local book store, to hear some of the writers read out their work from ‘The Words’. There will also be opportunities for you to ask for their autographs too.

‘The Words’ is available in Harpenden Books for £6.50, and is also on sale on our  website and from other local stores Serena Hart and Thorns.

Discover more about Harpenden Writers, what we do, who we are and how long we have been going. If you can make it on Saturday, we shall see you in-store. Failing that, check out our Facebook page.

And for a flavour of how our Book Launch Party with the Mayor went on 3rd November, you can listen to a Soundcloud audio feature on our Facebook page too.

As the Anthology Editor, Terry Jones, has written on our blurb: “…who was it who said that the purpose of literature was to help us better to enjoy life or endure it? Expect pleasure in these pages but also some pain.  There are sure to be laughs along the way …”
