Saturday 20th July @ 2pm: Malamander with author Thomas Taylor


Join author Thomas Taylor with an exciting event to celebrate his debut book, Malamander.

Nobody visits Eerie-on-Sea in the winter. Especially not when darkness falls and the wind howls around Maw Rocks and the wreck of the battleship Leviathan, where even now some swear they have seen the terrifying Malamander creep…
When Herbert Lemon, Lost-and-Founder at the Grand Nautilus Hotel and Violet Parma, a runaway orphan, discover that Violet’s parents disappearance might have something to do with the legendary sea-monster their lives get much more adventurous, mysterious and dangerous.

We adore this book at The Book Nook and can’t wait for Thomas’ visit. Come and learn all about the world of Eerie-on-Sea, what inspired Thomas to write the story and get a book signed. Perfect for 9+ readers.

Free event but please book.
