ONE of the top five best selling female fiction authors in the country will be paying a visit to Royal Wootton Bassett next week.

Lesley Pearse, a storyteller and master of gripping storylines, will be talking to an audience at Royal Wootton Bassett Library on Tuesday, July 22 from 3pm. Inspired by stories of courage and adversity and often giving voice to women lost in history, Lesley will be talking about her most recent bestseller, called Survivor, a story of bravery, fortitude and love.

She is an engaging author and speaker and her research for her stories has taken her far and wide; from Alaska to the Crimea.

Tickets are free and are available from the library in Borough Fields. Call 01793 853249 for further details of the event.
