Local author holds library reading

AS PART of Montrose Library’s half-term events local author Heather Murphy will read from her new book, ‘Stickleback Road’.

Heather wrote Stickleback Road for her own children when they were little and now this family favourite is in print for her grandchild to enjoy.

The book tells the story of two quirky characters who take the Stickleback Road together from Kirrietumdevon to the city of Blitz.

Along the way they meet Maxtalum Mandesti McPhee and a host of other characters.

Children will be thrilled to find out what happens when Maxtalum’s father met the fearsome Grunxidorra!

The story has been illustrated by Brechin artist Sheila Faichney and she will also be present to talk about the pictures and will be glad to meet any budding artists who come along.

All are welcome to the free event, but the reading is particularly suitable for accompanied children aged three to seven.

Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase on the day, with £1 from each sale going to charity.

Heather and Sheila are happy to help raise funds for any organisation or charity which would like to host a reading.
