The Waveney Author group were invited to appear at the Sparrows Nest Concert and authors ADP Sorisi, Sandra Delf, Franky Sayer, Suzan Collins and Davina Baron rose to the challenge. Not that it was a challenge of course, it was a beautiful event and here are some of our photos.

Thank you to everyone who bought the lucky dips (money to Alzheimer’s Research UK https://www.facebook.com/ARUKLowestoft/ ) and thank you to everyone who stopped to chat to us and bought signed copies of our books.
If you missed this event and/or wish to see these authors (and more from the Waveney Author Group) the majority of our authors will be appearing at the East Anglian Festival of Culture ‘Meet the Authors Weekend’ at The Hatfield Hotel
In between thinking about writing a book, writing a book, reading through what they’ve written and writing more members also take time out of their busy schedules to raise money for charity. I was fortunate to join fellow authors Elizabeth Manning Ives, Sandra Joanne Forder, Enid Thwaites and Sandra Delf at the East Coast Authors event at The Swan Hotel in Loddon recently to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.

The Waveney Author Group was delighted to be asked to read at the opening of The Synergy Café. This café is open to people living with dementia and their carers. Authors; Enid Thwaites, Helen Thwaites, Pam Finch and Suzan Collins attended.
Suzan, Pam, Helen, Enid, Bruce and Jan.
Pam talking with County Councillor Sonia Barker.

Everyone enjoyed a quiz about the 60s, super food (including pineapple and cheese on chopsticks) and had a jig to some 60s music.
